Justice for Tamir Rice on the first anniversary of his murder

Union Square, Manhattan

Police violence is reprehensible no matter the circumstances but especially when it is aimed at our young children at play. Sunday, November 22, will mark the first anniversary of the murder of 12 year old Tamir Rice. Tamir was playing on his own in an empty, snow-covered park in Cleveland, Ohio.  As so many of our children do, he was spinning imaginary tales with his toy gun and throwing snowballs for fun. But Tamir, a young black boy, was gunned down by the police officers who were alerted to a young man in the park with what looks like “a toy gun”. No questions, no investigation, no pause to consider this was a 12 year old at play. Tamir was shot seconds after the police officers got out of their car; officers did not even seek immediate medical attention while he lay dying.

The Stop Mass Incarceration Network is organizing protests around the U.S. on Nov. 22, including a march and rally at Union Square in Manhattan, and a “Children’s March” to show that all children are our children and all are in danger of falling to police violence.Please join the Green Party of Brooklyn on Sunday, Nov. 22. We will be meeting at the northeast corner of Union Square at 2 PM to  show our support and solidarity. Contact Dani with questions: (347) 218-3107 or daniliebling@yahoo.com
