On early Saturday morning of November 25th, 23 year-old Sean Bell,
along with two friends Joseph Guzman, 31 (shot 11 times) and Trent
Bennefield, 23 (shot 3 times) were gunned down by a NYPD task force
hours before Bell was supposed to get married. Bell was killed
instantly by a barrage of bullets. Bennefield and Guzman survivied
the shooting, but were being held in police custody - handcuffed to a
hospital bed.
To justify the shooting, the state claimed there was a "4th man" who
shot at the police first. In search of the fake gunman, the NYPD has
conducted illegal searches of innocent people's homes throughout the
African community.
Thousands of African have been taking to the streets demanding the
cops be jailed. It is clear to the community that the shooting was
unjustifiable - and that the police acted as judge, jury, prosecution
and executioners! However, we are also clear that the government is
incapable of punishing itself for its crimes against African people.
For real justice, Africans must build their own court...

Sponsored by the International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement
(InPDUM). InPDUM is a grassroots organization that defends the
democratic rights of the African community worldwide. We believe that
self-determination is the highest expression of democracy! Uhuru
Means Freedom!
