The uprising that began May 30 has been growing, and DSA chapters are working hard to support the Movement for Black Lives. Again, this is just a glimpse from Twitter; more actual prose to come, as well as photos from Occupy City Hall in Manhattan.
The New York City Council is scheduled to vote by June 30 on a budget that allocates $6 BILLION to a militarized police department that enforces white supremacy and defends private capitalist property relations by waging violence in Black and brown communities. 🚓💰🚨 1/3 pic.twitter.com/alXYeVkSm6

Cutting a billion dollars from the bloated budget of the lying, violent, lawless NYPD is necessary, but not sufficient.
We need to reduce their funding by half. Now.https://t.co/DqWTQ5Lc1M

The budget is due on June 30. De Blasio wants to deprive us of basic services while paying out billions to racist cops.
Power concedes nothing without a demand. We need to show up in numbers to MAKE our elected leaders do right by the people of NYC and CUT NYPD FUNDING BY HALF.
