On April 1, 2016, hundreds rallied in San Francisco demanding justice for all victims of police terror from Akai Gurley to Mario Woods.
Mass protests against police terror around the country have forced concessions from those in power proving the struggle to be determining factor in the outcome of these cases.
In New York, the struggle for justice for Akai Gurley, who was murdered by NYPD, has reached a critical point where the killer cop Peter Liang is facing potential jail time. While some reactionaries have mobilized to prevent this conviction, we demand that all killer cops must be held accountable for their crimes.
With the recent sham civil trial surrounding the murder of Alex Nieto in San Francisco, it’s time to stand up and fight back against the militarized gangs of police that criminalize and terrorize people like Akai Gurley, Alex Nieto, Mario Woods, Amilcar Perez-Lopez and every other person stolen from our communities.
