Harlem: Condemning the Police Murder of Oscar Grant
Revolution Newspaper
Harlem, February 6, 2008—Temperatures were in the low 30s as people gathered at the Harlem State Office Building on the corner of 125th Street and 7th Avenue to stand together with those protesting police brutality in Oakland, California. The corner warmed up as people of different nationalities began to express their deep outrage at the police execution of 22-year-old Oscar Grant, and the oppression of Black people and the crimes of this system more generally. People spoke bitterness, read poems, held placards and banners, debated, bought well over 100 copies of Revolution, and strategized. Many people had seen the YouTube video or heard about the killing of Oscar Grant. Most people were not aware of the level of resistance that has arisen in the Bay Area. They welcomed the news.
