full description & details:
If you think that police murder must STOP, be out in the streets with that message out on New Years Eve. Say in a loud, clear voice ? NO NEW YEAR UNDER THIS OLD SYSTEM! And ? WE CAN'T BREATHE!
If you have never been to a protest before, now is the time. We are all in this together.
Gather at 10:00pm at Denny and Broad near Seattle Center where thousands of people will be - and invite them to raise their voices!
We will hold up large visuals that say Stop Police Murder, No New Year Under This Old System, We Can't Breathe, Jail Killer Cops, Black Lives Matter. We will do a die-in and as the countdown to midnight begins, we will repeat the 11 times that Eric Garner gasped "I can't breathe" Then as the clock strikes twelve, we will blow whistles to ring in a New Year with resistance to police murder and in solidarity with the youth of some of the neighborhoods in NYC who wear and blow whistles whenever they encounter the police harassing someone.
If you are against torture, the wars and occupation of Gaza, the attacks on women and the attacks on immigrants, we invite you to come and say NO MORE to police murder and all these horrors. Bring your signs and banners.

Rock In The New Year With Resistance to Police Murder! NO NEW YEAR UNDER THIS OLD SYSTEM: We Can't Breathe.
On New Year's Eve, as the clock winds down on 2014, the powers that be will hope to be ringing in a new year that carries forward business as usual. That must not be allowed to go down because business as usual in Amerikkka includes wanton police murder of Black people. The refusal of grand juries in Ferguson and Staten Island to indict the cops who murdered Michael Brown and Eric Garner made this clear. So the powerful, beautiful and necessary outpourings that have disrupted this society's normal routine must continue and escalate on New Years Eve and into the New Year.
We should live in a society where those who are entrusted with public safety would sooner risk their own lives than kill or injure an innocent person. But in this society, cops who brutalize and murder are given the benefit of the doubt and are almost never punished in any way for their crimes. This is illegitimate and unacceptable. It must be STOPPED, and it's up to us to stop it! On New Year's Eve, we must act in many different ways to do just that.
If you think that police murder must STOP, be out in the streets with that message out on New Years Eve. Say in a loud, clear voice ? NO NEW YEAR UNDER THIS OLD SYSTEM! And ? WE CAN'T BREATHE! Bring your whistles and blow them loudly. Bring your signs and banners.
And if you think that torture, that violence against women and attacks on women's rights, that attacks on immigrants and the pillaging of the environment of the planet, that US wars for empire and attacks on people for who they love and how they love and more must be stopped; join us in the streets on New Year's Eve. Bring your signs and banners too. Figure out imaginative ways to say NO MORE to all these horrors.
