March for Justice for Kimani Gray, Gunned Down by Police At 16 Years of Age

Date: 
Sunday, March 24, 2013 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm
Address: 
55th St. and Church Ave.
Brooklyn, NY 11203
United States
From Oakland to NYC

Support Kimani Gray's community and all communities of color besieged by police violence, by coming out for a MASS MARCH SUNDAY THE 24TH. 3 pm, from the site of Kiki's daily vigil at 55th and Church, marching to the 67th precinct.

Guidelines for outside allies:

Keep in mind that people from outside the neighborhood should come as supporters and take a back seat. Here are some tips on how to show respect when you arrive (these are tips from OWS, not asked of us by community members):

  • Do not mic check at these demonstrations. That's for East Flatbush residents and march Organizers to take the lead on. If you do so, and you are not a resident or long-time Organizer in the area, we will know you are not with Occupy Wall Street.
  • If you choose to take photographs, ask people's permission.
  • Feel free to livestream or film police activity: http://www.livestream.com/userguide/index.php?title=Broadcast_live

When asked whether people from outside the neighborhood should be coming by, a longtime Organizer had this advice to give: "Come, yes. But don't come if you are not internally organized. Come. Come if you can take a back seat. Come if you plan to develop real relationships and maintain them over the long-haul."

In Oakland there will be a solidarity rally, March 21st at 5pm #OaklandProtest in #solidarity w/ #BrooklynProtest
