On Saturday night, in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, two NYPD plain clothes officers shot a 16-year-old boy to death, who by all witness accounts was not armed. On Monday night, and each night since members of the community have gathered to express their grief, love and rage in response to the needless murder of Kimani “Kiki” Gray. Dozens have been arrested (some violently) since. Politicians and police will predictably continue to try and stifle this long expected response to oppressive and racist policing tactics such as stop and frisk.
Concerned community members are encouraged to meet at 52nd St. and Church Ave. nightly at 7pm. “Bring friends, share with your networks and bring noise makers. We need to demand for justice by any mean necessary. The killing has to stop. Enough is Enough” For updates see the We want Justice for Kimani Gray Facebook page. Watch out for each other out there, our solidarity is our most powerful weapon!
