No New Year Under the Same Old System! We Can t Breathe: Torture, Police Brutality & Murder Are Not Debatable, They Are Morally Wrong and Must Stop!

Henry Giroux draws from his latest book, The Violence of Organized Forgetting, to talk about torture and the violence revealed in the recent US Senate Report on Torture. He recently wrote that, after September 11, 2001, “The United States entered into a new and barbarous stage in its history, one in which acts of violence and moral depravity were not only embraced but celebrated.” Henry Giroux is an author and currently holds the McMaster University Chair for Scholarship in the Public Interest in the English and Cultural Studies Department at Ryerson University.
Carl Dix will be talking about where we’re at right now in the fight against police brutality, including nationwide protests on New Year’s — and what it’s going to take to end this epidemic of police murder. He recently wrote a call, “Rock in the New Year With Resistance to Police Murder! NO NEW YEAR UNDER THIS OLD SYSTEM! WE CAN’T BREATHE!”
