Justice for Tyre Nichols! Speakout and March
Wednesday February 8, 5 PM
Meet at Alumni Plaza at Salem State University for an open mic to speakout against police violence — for Tyre, for Tortuguita, for Sayed Faisal. We will then march to downtown Salem.
The brutal murder of Tyre Nichols by Memphis police was not an isolated incident resulting from a few bad cops; it was the latest consequence of the racism and wickedness inherent to the American policing system as a whole.
Although Tyre's murderers have been fired and indicted, that's not enough. 2022 was the deadliest year for police killings in the last 10 years. Locally, Cambridge Police recently murdered UMass Boston student Sayed Faisal.
