Monday, July 13, 2015. New York City – On Monday, July 6, 2015, People’s Monday activists traveled to Flatbush, Brooklyn to demand justice for Tony Terrell Robinson. They gathered at the corner of Church Ave and Flatbush Ave, then they walked to Nostrand Ave and shut down Church Ave and Nostrand Ave. After shutting down these avenues, they walked to the NYPD 71st Precinct at 421 Empire Boulevard (corner of New York Ave), Brooklyn, NY 11225.
On Facebook, demonstrators said “#PeoplesMonday travels to Flatbush, Brooklyn on July 6th to demand justice for Tony Terrell Robinson, four months to the day that Tony was killed by police. #PeoplesMonday is held at the same time Tony will be remembered at a demonstration in Madison, Wisconsin organized by the Young Gifted and Black coalition. https://www.facebook.com/events/1624052804529180/
Tony, 19-years-old and unarmed, was killed by police earlier this year in Madison, Wisconsin. His murder-by-cop sparked protests in Madison and across the country. No charges were pressed against the officer who killed Tony and that same officer – who had previously killed a civilian in the line of duty – was not fired or disciplined. He is back on duty with the Madison Police Department.”
Activists, added “honor Tony Robinson, by telling his story and demanding justice and police accountability.
Tony’s life mattered. For him, and other victims of police violence and over-criminalization, we say #ItStopsToday
#BlackLivesMatter #FistsUpFightBack #NoJusticeNoPeace #EndPoliceBrutality #NYC2Madison.”
