Photo: Protesters march in Boston yesterday demanding justice for Tyre Nichols
Demonstrations were held across the country yesterday in outraged response to the murder of Tyre Nichols at the hands of Memphis police. The video of his killing has now been released to the public and has horrified the nation and the world. We need to mobilize in the streets to demand an end to police terror!
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. Only the people can put an end to the regime of police terror that Black America is subjected to.
The five officers involved have been arrested. But only through struggle can we secure conviction 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.
Join a demonstration near you!
