We Can't Breathe!

New York City last night (Photo by Ellen Davidson)


Another not so
grand
Grand Jury
announcement
yesterday
Eric Garner
"I can't breathe"
choked to death
by NYC police
caught on tape
he was unarmed
once more
cops set free
no accountability

No justice
No peace!

In the US
an African American
killed every 28 hours by cops,
security guards or vigilantes
African American 22 times
more likely to be killed by cops
than a white person

Hands Up
Don't shoot!

Militarization of local
police
now serve and protect
the corporate oligarchy

Shut this shit down!

Mr. Big
is cutting off our
air supply
democracy drowned
in the bathtub
the citizens
are the enemy

We can't breathe!

Indict, convict,
put the killer cops in jail
the whole damn system
is guilty as hell!

Forward together
no going back!
