New Haven Movie Night: Fight Police Brutality!
FIGHT POLICE BRUTALITY EVERYWHERE!
As cops continue to wage war on communities with impunity, people are gathering everywhere to organize and protect themselves. People are on the move everywhere as the cops who murdered Alton Sterling get away with no charges, Stephon Clark’s family demands justice and more and more Black and Brown people are abused or gunned down.
Join us to watch 2 fantastic films on police brutality and fightback against it, and participate in a discussion on how we can fight back locally.
These Streets Are Watching
A Copwatch documentary teaching people about their rights when interacting with police. A fresh look at police accountability through the eyes of 3 cities: Denver, Cincinnati and Berkeley. The film is divided into sections — knowing your rights, tactics for documenting police activity, and ideas for organizing.
No Justice, No Peace!
A Liberation News documentary that takes on the reality of police brutality in California. Through disturbing case studies and such daunting statistics as the fact that, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, “an average of 400 – 500 innocent people are murdered by law officers in the United States every year,” Liberation News peels back the racial reality which underlies such violent iterations of law enforcement.
