Within the coming days, a Grand Jury in Ferguson will announce whether Officer Darren Wilson will be indicted for the murder of unarmed teenager Michael Brown.
On the day of the announcement, activists, organizers, concerned citizens and community members in Pittsburgh will unite and stand in solidarity with the Brown family and all victims of police violence.
“We protest and resist the unjust killings of Black & Brown people every 28 hours by a police officer, security, or vigilante in the US” said protest organizer Julia Johnson
The Pittsburgh activists organizing against police brutality demand:
1. The indictment, arrest, and prosecution of Darren Wilson
2. Drop all remaining charges Against Leon Ford, Jr. and assign desk duty for Officer Derbish
3. For the DA to be vigilant in the prosecution of police misconduct, specifically Officer Derbish and Officer Miller
4. Re-implement the federal consent decree in the Pittsburgh Police Bureau
They ask all citizens of Pittsburgh to join us the day of the announcement to demand justice for all victims of police brutality.
