Black Youth-Organized Millions March NYC Draws Tens of Thousands in Movement’s Biggest Protest Yet

I have a dream: equality for all.
Saturday’s nationwide actions against police killings and racial profiling included a "Millions March" across the USA that drew tens of thousands to the streets of New York City. It was the largest single protest of the post-Ferguson/post Eric Garner movement and the culmination of daily actions in New York City since a prosecutor swayed another grand jury not to indict the group of police officers who killed Eric Garner. After gathering in Washington Square Park, a massive crowd spanned dozens of city blocks as it marched uptown before turning around and closing at police headquarters downtown. Democracy Now!’s Aaron Maté and Samantha Riddell were in the streets to speak to the protesters who came out and the young black organizers who made it happen.

M&M: united we stand!
Breaking news: Demonstrators in Oakland, California have shut down the local police station to demonstrate against decades of police brutality, racism, excessive force, corruption, and the killings of innocent victims. More to follow as breaking news emerges from the scene. The people are rising up, people of all races, to insist on justice, equality, and freedom for all citizens.
