OUR ENEMIES IN BLUE - Panel Discussion at Harlem School of The Arts

Our Enemies in Blue, was a panel discussion and community conversation discussing the abusive behavior of the NYPD.  The discussion was held at the Harlem School of the Arts (HSA) on February 22, 2012.

International Socialist Organization - The racist practices of the NYPD are nothing new. But in recent weeks and months, the NYPD's brutality has been exposed to the world: from a New York Times editorial by a young black man who is one of the hundreds of thousands stopped and frisked each year because of the color of his skin, to the videos of the beating and pepper-spraying of peaceful Occupy Wall Street demonstrators, and recent revelations that the NYPD showed its officers the Islamophobic "Third Jihad" film featuring Comissioner Ray Kelly.   And more and more people are standing up, from the outburst of anger after the NYPD's beating of Jateik Reed and murder of Ramarley Graham, a growing movement against stop and frisk, marches against NYPD brutality, and in defense of Jazz Hayden, who is standing up to retaliation from the NYPD for his tireless efforts in documenting and exposing their harrassment of Black and Brown people in Harlem. Sponsored by the International Socialist Organization (Uptown and Bronx Branches)
