16-year-old Kimani Gray—another Black youth murdered by the NYPD. How long are we going to have to bury youth who have been killed by cops? This is unacceptable, and it must be stopped. It'll take Revolution—Nothing Less to stop these official murders and all the other horrors this system inflicts on people here and around the world!

Anyone who wants to see these outrages ended needs to be in the house on March 16th for the premier of BA Speaks: Revolution—Nothing Less! at the Magic Johnson Theater in Harlem. You need to see this film because in it Bob Avakian, the leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party, speaks with passion and science about the real possibility of bringing into being a different world, one where the madness, oppression and degradation of today has been done away with.

I've been on the front lines fighting police brutality, stop-and-frisk and other injustices perpetrated for decades, and I do that from this revolutionary perspective. That's why I stand with the people who stood up yesterday in Brooklyn, and why I say we need more, and more determined, resistance to these murders. And why we need to "Fight the Power, and Transform the People, for Revolution!"
