Black is Back Coalition Protests NYPD Shooting in Times Square
The Black is Back Coalition (BIBC) held a demonstration on September 17, 2013 in response to the NYPD's shooting into a crowd of onlookers in their attempt to gun down an African man. In the process, two women were shot. The BIBC is called on all those who stand for freedom and social justice to voice our opposition to this act of police violence, and bring awareness to other acts of oppression against the general public, including:
• Times Square's traditional hostility to the presence of Africans, and
• The NYPD's blatant disregard for African and all the people of New York's safety
It has been documented that in 2012 every 28 hours the police or white vigilantes kill an African somewhere in the United States. These are the statistics we will be demonstrating against on Tuesday in Times Square.
The Black is Back Coalition is an organization of different organizations, activists and victims of police violence and other forms of U.S. government oppression. We believe that we must build a movement to lead the people to fight for true power and liberation.
