Remember Kids, The Only Good Cop Is A Dead Cop

October 22nd Coalition to Stop Police Brutality

On October 22, people of all races and many different backgrounds will take to the streets across the country to say in one loud voice: STOP POLICE BRUTALITY! Last year on October 22nd, in more than 70 areas across the country over 12,000 people--youth, lawyers, teachers, students, clergy, musicians and other artists--took to the streets in rallies, cultural events and other forms of protest. People protested in cities, large and small, on reservations and college campuses.

The National Day of Protest aims to bring forward a powerful, visible, national protest against police brutality and the criminalization of a generation. It aims to expose the state's repressive program. It aims to bring forward those most directly under the gun of Police Brutality AND to also reach into all parts of the society--bringing forward others to stand in the fight against this official brutality. And the National Day of Protest aims to strengthen the peoples' organized capacity for resistance in a variety of ways.
