Take to the streets to protest the horrific police killing of Tyre Nichols by five Memphis Police Department officers! Tyre Nichols, a 29-year-old Black man, was mercilessly beaten to death earlier this month during a traffic stop.
Last April, Indianapolis police electrocuted and suffocated Herman Whitfield III, a 39-year-old Black man, to death in front of his parents after they had called for medical help.
Only the people can put an end to the regime of police terror and the war against Black America. We the people need to take to the streets to fight back against police killings and state repression.
In 2020, tens of millions of people took to the streets across the country and around the world against racist police killings in the wake of the murder of George Floyd. That same spirit of resistance is needed now to keep up the fight.
The five officers involved in Nichols’s death have been arrested. No officers have been arrested or fired for killing Herman Whitfield III. Only through struggle can we secure charges and convictions in a court system rigged at every turn in favor of the police. And only a mass movement of the people can put an end to the extreme police violence that takes place on a daily basis across the country and claims so many innocent lives.
