2nd Featured Poster of the Week
The struggle for justice continues to be stymied. Last week a Missouri grand jury declined to indict the white police officer who killed Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager. This week a New York grand jury cleared an NYPD cop in the chokehold death of Eric Garner, also unarmed and black. Garner's death was caught-on-video and the only people arrested were the videographer and his wife. As 1000s continue to demonstrate across the country against this blatant impunity, we must recognize that these events are not isolated incidents, but a consistent part of U.S. government policy, at home and abroad. 45 years ago today, Fred Hampton, head of the Chicago chapter of the Black Panther Party, was assassinated by the FBI. His poster and story are below.
