Sat August 6, 2016- Communities around the Country will send one clear message to the DOJ-You haven’t done enough!
In Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Atlanta and countless other cities_Saturday August 6, 2016 at 12:00 Noon until 2:00 pm-people in various communities will find a Department of Justice or a police station . By issuing this National Day of Action we are saying the Justice Department has to admit that it’s experiment in refusal to prosecute the “Bad Cops'” who have killed innocent civilians is leading to a National crisis. The Department of Justice better known as the D.O.J has failed. In the Aftermath-The results equal the death of accountability, of justice, and of deterrence. The result is a wave of crime against civilians in which these murderers continue to harm the public and further inaction from the D.O.J will only increase these crimes.
Many believe The U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch and the courts cannot continue to ignore that we need policy emphasizing the need to prosecute these cops and the refusal is causing an epidemic. So on August 6, 2016 from 11:00 am until ( most locations will do a moment of silence at noon or one) – coalition members and the public will take matters into our own hands. We move! We Break Every Chain! Police Brutality, Department of Justice, Political and any source of oppression to our people.
Members of Freedom First International, The Violence Interrupters, as well as multiple organizations and groups abroad will be present to stand up and insist on changing the landscape of our civil rights around our country-It’s simple On August 5-6, Find a D.O.J Office, and a Police Station in your area and stand! -and send a message.
According to an ongoing petition from Amnesty International:
The U.S. government must do more to ensure policing practices nationwide are brought into line with international human rights standards, including the use of lethal force, and to address systemic racial discrimination. The Department of Justice has failed to collect accurate, comprehensive national data on police use of force, including the numbers of people killed or injured through police shootings or other types of force.
Thus far locations to be announced include Chicago, Atlanta, TexasThus far.
- A Press Release and Press Conferences are scheduled in Chicago on Wednesday at the Police Headquarters Station on 3510 South Michigan at 12:00 noon. Expect announcements and a petition to be signed in the coming days. Interested Parties can send an email to one of the Organizers Gregg L Greer: at firstname.lastname@example.org
