Police Murder and Brutality Must Stop!!

Action Saturday, Dec 13th

Signholding - March - Die-in

On Saturday, December 13, thousands of people will come to march in Washington, DC against police violence, called by National Action Network. People will be coming from the entire eastern seaboard, from Florida to New England and as far away as Detroit. It has been announced that families of those lost to police murder will be there, including relatives of Eric Garner, Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin.

This is the first major national mobilization against police brutality since the non-indictments of the police killers of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. 

The Stop Mass Incarceration Network has called for a week of actions, beginning December 8.  Many have already been held. 

During the past few days, demonstrations against police brutality and murder have been spreading everywhere.  100 government staff persons walked out today and held a "Hands Up!  Don't Shoot" action on the front steps.  City Counsel members in NYC held a protest in front of City Hall and then walked out into the streets.  Students have walked out in high schools and colleges.  Die-ins have been held by medical students.  Clergymen have held marches in the streets, and will deliver sermons again police brutality this Sunday.   For some dramatic photos of pictures from across the U.S. and around the world go to:

On Saturday we will be part of this.   We'll begin by holding signs at the corner of Atkinson & Ala Moana Blvd. for a half hour.   After 10:30 we'll cross Ala Moana for a march around Ala Moana Shopping Center.  At a central area there will be a die-in.  Those who don't want to march or participate in the die-in can continue to hold signs at the corner of Atkinson/Ala Moana until the return of the demonstrators.  Thousands will see us on this busy shopping day - wherever we are!

Bring signs, water, and sunscreen.   Remember that there's very limited parking in Ala Moana Shopping Center, and you will probably want to try for parking within Ala Moana Park.
