Hundreds of protesters organized by Mass Action Against Police Brutality, Boston’s Black community, communities of color, the Muslim community, Nation of Islam, unions, Fast Food Organizers, Fight for $15 and supporters rallied at Dudley MBTA Station in Roxbury , then rallied in an adjacent park, and marched to Grove Hall, speaking out against a wave of police terror, speaking out and marching in solidarity with many thousands in cities and states across the nation who are protesting the 7/5/16 police assassination of a Black man, Alton Sterling, who was pinned down in Baton Rouge, Louisiana by two white police officers, and shot to death; protesting another police assassination that occurred less than 48 hours later in Saint Paul, Minnesota, of a Black man, Philando Castile, who was shot by a Minnesota police officer 4 times in front of his girlfriend ,Lavish Reynolds, and her 4 year old daughter when the cop open fired on Philando after he reached for his wallet to show his drivers license, after being pulled over because of a broken car tail light.

Protesters are seeking justice for victims of police terror, and protesting a racist criminal justice system; demanding an end to what appears to be a genocidal pattern… the loss of a Black life… snuffed out by “law enforcement” ….EVERY 28 hours !!!

Speakers spoke about police brutality and murders in Boston, and New England, remembering Burrell Ramsey-White, Jeffrey Pendleton, Ussamah Rahim, and so many others.
