March for Justice with DFNYC, Community Leaders and Sean Bell's Family - Sat. Dec 16, 11:30am

-Meet at 59th Street & 5th Avenue

Community leaders from all over the City have planned a citywide call to action for prompt and decisive action to protest misconduct in the shootings of three young men by the NYPD on November 25. A massive "March for Justice," will take place this Saturday, December 16th, beginning at 11:30 am at 59th Street & 5th Avenue.

Democracy for NYC along with Community Free Democrats and Three Parks Independent Democrats are joining our elected officials, civic and community leaders, and union members in a show of unity. Please join us Saturday. Let us know if you're coming.

To join our group, email Bernadette at bevangelist@dfnyc.org.

For more information about the march, contact 212-408-8416.

NOTES: I should note that Central Brooklyn Independent Democrats is also spreading the word about this. I also should note that I have been told that this is not a permitted march, but that the police will not interfere. Joy and I will try to be there.
Location:
Meet at 59th Street & 5th Avenue in Manhattan

I've read elsewhere on local blogs that not getting a permit for a march heading down Fifth Avenue during Christmas season was a deliberate provocation. Fifth Ave. businesses are not going to be happy. I really hope the police don't interfere. It could get ugly.

    Hi, I was wondering are there any other protests for justice in relation to the sean bell case? I heard there was going to be one on the 20th of this month? I'm trying to find more info on where and when it will be at.

    Hm I haven't heard about one on the 20th.

    This one, at least 40,000 strong, went off without any major hitches, and according to Leslie Cagan, the organizers did not actually get a permit for this, though they were in contact with the NYPD, who were on their best behavior (proving that the NYPD can prepare for a march very quickly if they want to, and don't need to go through this whole ridiculous parade permitting process).
