#RevolutionaryReelz - "By Any Means Necessary"

 
CPR is proud to partner with The Gathering for Justice for their #RevolutionaryReelz - "By Any Means Necessary". 
 
Eric Garner was choked to death by Daniel Pantaleo more than four years ago in Staten Island NY. December 3rd will mark the four year anniversary of the grand jury non-indictment of Pantaleo and we have been fighting for accountability ever since. His death galvanized the nation but we must make sure that it was not in vain by fighting alongside his family for justice for her son.
 
A social justice documentary exploring why the NYPD, and US police departments more broadly, routinely use deadly force against non-violent minor offenders without receiving any punishment beyond losing vacation days. The film examines police practices primarily through the lens of the NYPD Eric Garner incident although other US police departments are covered. NYPD officers used a policy prohibited chokehold on Mr. Garner because he was selling 50 cent cigarettes on the street and wound up choking him to death. The film discovers how the management of police departments create a climate where officers routinely use excessive force against minor offenses. Additionally, we observe NYC government’s failed responses to prevent future officer chokeholds and present actionable solutions for reforming the NYPD and US police departments.

Mohamed Bah Memorial & #DropTheAppeal Presser

Tues. Sept. 25, 2018 marks six years since the NYPD killed #MohamedBah in his own home. Please join Mohamed's mother, the Justice Committee, and others on Tuesday, September 25 at 12pm on the Steps of City Hall to demand Mayor de Blasio drop his appeal of the excessive force ruling in the Bah civil suit and put an end to the suffering it is causing the Bah family.

The de Blasio administration is insisting on pushing forward with an appeal of Bah v the City of NY, in spite of the facts that: A. a New York jury found the NYPD liable for killing Mohamed Bah in Nov. 2017; B. Judge Kevin Castel upheld the liability ruling against Officer Edwin Mateo in response to the City's qualified immunity motion in May 2018; and C. there has been an outpouring of support for the Bah family's demand that de Blasio #DropTheAppeal.

Mrs. Bah would like supporters to join her for a brief memorial at Mohamed's apartment at 113 Morningside Ave. in Harlem following the rally at City Hall.

Location:
Steps of City Hall, New York City, NY 10007
