The National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality was observed in Jamaica, Queens at the busy pedestrian mall on 165th Street and Jamaica Avenue in the Jamaica section in the New York City borough of Queens, New York.  Organized by an activist clergy person known for her outspokenness against police brutality and the incarceration of Blacks and Latinos, five persons gathered and distributed flyers, and along with homemade signage, called out the escalation of police violence in the predominantly middle class African American community.  A local weekly community newspaper recorded their action.

The Call for the 18th National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation October 22, 2013

“The Call for the 18th National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation is to bring forward the united, powerful, visual coalition of families victimized by police terrorism and to reach into all parts of our community. May our unity bring the change that our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren so rightfully deserve – freedom, justice, equality, humanity, respect, and a right to take BART [Bay Area Rapid Transit] and a right to walk to 7-11 for Skittles and ice tea without being executed.” - Cephus “Uncle Bobby” Johnson, the uncle of Oscar Grant   Read the Call pdf down load of the O22 Call  O22 Call.pdf
