The Rise Up October Demonstrations In New York City from October 22-24 were an Important Step Forward in the Fight Against Police Terror—We Must Now Make Plans to Take it Further.
The thousands from all over the country who testified, resisted, and marched through the streets made clear that there was a force, a movement, that is determined to draw a clear line, challenging everyone, throughout the country, to RISE UP against police murder and terror, and challenging others - "Which Side Are You On?!"
We need to make plans to make plans to take this higher, we need to dig into what we did right and what we did wrong—our strengths as well as our shortcomings and mistakes... but even more, it needs to do this in the spirit of going forward, united in even more powerful expressions, until Police Murder is actually STOPPED.
There is a place for you in this. Your ideas, your support, your efforts are urgently needed... In fact, this can only happen on the scale that is absolutely necessary if many, many people throw in on this, now—people who have been fighting this, as well as people who are just now coming to the fight. You are needed. We face a decisive moment, a crossroads, where terms are being set as to what is legitimate, what will be tolerated and what will be opposed. Lives are at stake. Be part of determining the outcome.
WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON?
