The choking death of Eric Garner by New York City police last July was captured on a cell phone for the world to witness the unnecessary death of yet another unarmed black man who did not resist arrest, his apparent crime was selling individual cigarettes. He died for this crime being choked to death in a need legal stranglehold while crying for help " I cannot breathe, I cannot breathe..."
Once again a grand jury chose not to indict Ofc. Daniel Pantoleo even though the video showed clearly that his life was not endangered by this unarmed suspect.
"We as a community will not accept the impunity by police officers or the grand jury. We will not accept the murder of an armed, innocent citizens. No more… This is got to stop now!!

You are the Community in Community Radio
...and we need your sustaining monthly contribution!
Thanks to your support we were able to be there to help organize a
community response that made San Diego proud.
Activist San Diego steps up to the
challenge of ongoing community organizing.
We rallied, we marched - Outraged yet Peaceful.
Now to Build a People's Movement for Equity and Social Justice
Activist San Diego is indebted to you for your support. Hundreds of you turned out for one of the 4 days of consecutive actions in which ASD played a major role. Like you we felt outrage at the lack of justice, but we turned that frustration into a tremendous outpouring that promises to strengthen multiracial and multi-generational activism. We are determined stop the growth of militarized and racialized policing and shed light on the discriminatory practices that undermine peace and social equity.
PLEASE READ OUR PLEA!
But we face a crisis: A new generation of youth and community are coming forward, yearning to get involved. ASD is eager to train and work with this new energy, but we lack the financial resources of a coordinator, facilities and the tools that successful organizers need make a breakthrough.
The future is bright with your support! After 6 years in the bureaucratic trenches to establish a new FM radio station, KNSJ 89.1 FM is poised to become a tranformative agent of education and communication for a new generation. Now we need to connect our informational mission to our mobilization mission. With your commitment ASD can train these new forces to rebuild a people's movement.
WE ARE THANKFUL THAT YOU ARE WITH US!
For 15 years Activist San Diego and been there for you... and with you.
At this very moment ASD needs YOU to step forward and pledge ongoing financial support to create new organizing capacity.
- If each of the 1300 of you who receive this newsletter donated $2-$5 a month, we'd become a more powerful organization.
- If a few more of you would invest 10 times that amount we'd be powerfully transformative organization.
- And if a few special people we know or have yet to meet, would inject even more substantial resource, it would allow us to challenge and change power relations in San Diego County.
