Black Is Back Coalition
On Tuesday, September 17 at 6:30PM at Times Square (43rd St between Broadway and Seventh Ave) the Black is Back Coalition (BIBC) will hold a demonstration in response to the NYPD’s shooting into a crowd of onlookers in their attempt to gun down an African man. In the process, two women were shot. The BIBC is calling on all those who stand for freedom and social justice to join us as we voice our opposition to this act of police violence, and bring awareness to other acts of oppression against the general public, including:
• Times Square’s traditional hostility to the presence of Africans, and
• The NYPD’s blatant disregard for African and all the people’s of New York safety
It has been documented that in 2012 every 28 hours the police or white vigilantes kill an African somewhere in the United States. These are the statistics we will be demonstrating against on Tuesday in Times Square. We call on the public to come and join us.
The Black is Back Coalition is an organization of different organizations, activists and victims of police violence and other forms of U.S. government oppression. We believe that we must build a movement to lead the people to fight for true power and liberation.
