On July 5th 2016 Alton Sterling was pinned down in Baton Rouge, 
Louisiana by two white police officers, Blaine Salamoni and Howie Lake, 
and shot to death. Less than 48 hours later in Saint Paul, Minnesota 
another Black man, Philando Castile was shot by an unidentified 
Minnesota police officer 4 times during a traffic stop in front of his 
girlfriend Lavish Reynolds and her 4 year old daughter.

Both murders were captured on video and the world has seen yet again 
what the police in the U.S. do as routine to Black people: they murder 
them in cold blood. Since 2014 a little over 3,000 people have been 
murdered by the police and less than 1% of these officers get indicted, 
let alone convicted and sent to jail for their crimes against the people.

Both of these heinous murders were captured on video for the world to 
see how the police handle Black people on a daily basis; they murder 
them in cold blood and hide behind the veneer of "protecting and 
serving" when they only protect and serve themselves and the owning 
class. Every 28 hours at least one Black life is lost to enforcement. 
The police, historically rooted in older modes of controlling and 
disciplining Black people, and oppressed and exploited people in 
general, have revealed themselves yet again to be the muscle of a racist 
white supremacist police state.

We call on all progressive people, defenders of democratic rights, 
anti-racists, and those that are against this racist police state to 
unite and demand justice for Alston Sterling, Philando Castile, and all 
victims of police brutality and state sanctioned violence. We know that 
our power is in the streets, in the organization of everyday people, and 
the criminal justice system is run by criminals and corrupt lackeys of a 
inherently racist system. Join us and raise your voice against this 
barbarity and madness! Share your pain, poetry, truth, and rage! 
Denounce those that say they protect and serve but in reality brutalize, 
kill, assault, and cover up! It won't stop until we make it stop! Only 
through massive action of everyday people can we win!
