NYPD Commish Ray Kelly Must Resign!
Police brutality against Union Square protestors is part of a strategy to beat us away from the spotlight. What general winter failed to do, Bloomberg and Kelly hope to accomplish with billy clubs and pepper spray.
Our answer cannot be spoken of in soft and polite tones; it must be roared: Hello no, we won’t go! Police Commissioner Ray Kelly must resign, the NYPD must stop using violence as a first and only recourse to nonviolent protest, and all those concerned with an out of control, spying and lying police high command must work together to make it happen.
We’ll be gathering at noon at Liberty Square (Zuccotti Park) and marching from there. Our response to NYPD police brutality and mass arrests will be peaceful; our best defence is a large turnout.
