March for Justice

 

Eric Garner was the son of a Local 100 member and the brother of a Local 100 member.

We cannot accept a “law and order” that means killing our unarmed family members for talking back to cops.

March for justice for Eric Garner and for this Local 100 family.

Join us tomorrow, Saturday, at Victory Blvd & Bay St in Staten Island between 11:00am and noon. March to the rally at Hamilton Ave & Richmond Terrace.
