As many already know The NY POST is a newspaper that is owned and controlled by the Right Winger Rupert Murdoch, who in essence is a corporate racist, that continually supports and disseminates racist, classist, sexist and all forms of pro 1% misinformation through his NY POST newspaper as well as FOX television.
This rag has also continually posted lies and misinformation about the Black Lives Matter movement, protests and uprising. We say NO REST FOR THE WICKED and beyond this action a boycott of the NY POST and FOX NEWS remains in existence as long as the lies continue from its newspaper, news programming and other media services.
This Die-In Shutdown and Boycott is but the first part of a larger upcoming campaign for justice, and one way to make change is to begin hitting the 1% in their pockets as well as enlighten, expand and maximize participation in the movement as well as a action to expose the racist lies and bias of mass media starting with but NOT limited to the NY POST!
We also plan to do outreach to the 99% to explain the campaign and boycott and the role that ‘mainstream’ often dilutes the truth (when its not outright lying or mis-characterizing it).
We also will have the following:
The firing of Officer Daniel Panteleo
Reparations to Garner family
Outside (Independent) review of all cases involving police brutality and murder of civilians
Firing of prosecutor Daniel Donavon in this and recall elections -involving prosecutor
Independent Prosecutor (with no ties to the police department) in this and all future cases
Firing of Police Commissioner Bill Bratton
Immediate end of the Lowest level priority prosecutions (marijuana)
Intermediate Institutional Demand Include:
Community Control of Police…
Elimination of test -Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory /Publish curriculum of training of NYPD
End of drug war and funding involving the militarization of the police
We are also calling for a boycott of NY post for its continued bias, racist untruths and misrepresentation of the facts of the Garner and most other cases of police brutality and murder of civilians in this city.
These Consented demands were created at a open meeting following the BlackLivesMatter Justice for Eric Garner Assembly, the newly formed committee of Occupy For Justice Because Black Lives Matter on December 5, 2014
We have organizing assemblies every Friday at 60 Wall Street NYC 7:00PM
