NO School NO Work

NO Business as Usual

#SHUTITDOWNNYC Against Racism & Police Brutality

DEC 1st
Monday starting at 12 noon
Union SQ – South Side (17th Street)

If you believe #BlackandBrownLivesMatter, then come to Union Square, Mon., Dec. 1st starting at 12 noon EST.
Bring, signs, whistles, drums, instruments, pots and pans,

The movement in Ferguson, MO has called for people across the country to walk out of their jobs, schools, and homes starting at 12pm CST in outrage over the murder of #MikeBrown and hundreds of people of color murdered by the police.

This is especially important for us in NYC as we too wait for the grand jury decision for the NYPD murder of #EricGarner to be announced any day now. NYC has lost countless Black and Brown people due to police murders including #SeanBell #KyamLivingston #ShantelDavis #KimaniGray #NicholasHeywardJr #RamarleyGraham and most recently #AkaiGurley just to name a few. We demand an END to “Broken Windows” policing and the NYPD occupation of our neighborhoods that terrorizes communities of color in NYC.

We are asking student, worker & community groups to immediately discuss plans for Walkout contingents to converge in Union SQ. on the Southside at 17th Street for an action. More details to come!

We are open to your ideas & multiple scenarios. Please add friends to the page. Please let us know if you want to host and meet over the weekend.

Please contact us at:

We must keep the pressure on to demand an END to RACIST POLICE Terror in our communities.
