  • Myanmar coup: Protesters accuse China of backing military junta
  • « For some people, police stations are ‘protecting and serving ‘, for a lot of black people police are over agressive, over policing and targeting black men. The police building was a symbol of white supremacy. And the fire was civil disobedience, civil unrest and that turned into a celebration. Police pulled out, no one was hurt.»
    Mike Griffin, senior organizer, Community Change Action

    « Things have degraded gravely, we had peaceful protests and now we have all out riots. Taking over police stations, lightning them up on fire, are not celebrations. Tax payers will have to pay for these things down the road. People in the community will suffer of lack of police service, and lack of police cars etc.
    Joseph Giacalone, retired NYPD Detective Sergeant, adjunct professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice
