We’re all devastated by the news. We saw the video of the chokehold that killed Eric Garner, so how could this happen? At the same time, no one is surprised. How many police officers who have killed young unarmed black men have ever been held accountable? At 5:30 this evening, there is a protest of the grand jury decision in Foley Sq, near City Hall and the courts.
If folks would like to go, we will be meeting in front of the school at 5. If you’re closer to Grand Street, a second contingent will be meeting at the M22 bus stop on FDR and Grand at 5 pm.
It seems an important thing for our children to know about and join if you can.
