Snehal Shingavi on Police Brutality and Racism in America

 

Snehal Shingavi talks about the state of racism and police brutality in America. He outlines how the government spends money on a police force that works to divide the poor from the rich and further gentrify America. This allows the rich ruling class of society to do what ever they want and get away with it.

 

Snehal highlights the need to properly protect and serve the population instead of just protecting the rich and their private property. Institutions need to be created to help civilians hold police accountable for the crimes they commit.

Shehal Shingavi also outlines a few organizations worth getting involved with here in Austin:

- The People’s Task Force

- The Peaceful Streets Project

- National Lawyers Guild

- American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)

All of which are working to watch police or implement police accountability measures.

In this video members of the People’s Task Force met up at Resistencia Bookstore to discuss, plan and create strategies for the National Day of Action against Police Violence Protest taking place on 12/13/14. If you haven’t yet, please watch and share the video from the protest on the 13th here: https://youtu.be/DRtOkHw8ep0
