#ThisStopsToday 11 Days of Action
Wednesday, December 10-20, 2014
On July 17, 2014, Eric Garner cried out “I Can’t Breathe” at least 11 times to NYPD officers when Officer Daniel Pantaleo put him in an NYPD-banned chokehold during what has been justified by the NYPD as a “broken windows” arrest. As a result, Eric Garner died that day on a Staten Island sidewalk, with multiple officers standing around him offering no assistance.
Communities United for Police Reform members and allies launched the #ThisStopsToday #11days of Action and 11 demands for police accountability in memory of the 11 times that Eric Garner said, “I can’t breathe.”
Daily actions are happening all over the city as New Yorkers come together to say "This Stops Today!"
