Mark it on your calendar: Tomorrow is the ‘Day of Anger’

That’s its subtitle. Its more optimistic main title is “Millions March New York City,” and whether its organizers get anywhere near that number, the traffic snarls it will create will make it feel like ten million are marching.

For those who need to ask at this late juncture what they’re angry about, their Facebook page tells all:

We Demand Justice.
For Mike Brown.
For Eric Garner.
For Akai Gurley.
For All Those Killed By Racist Killer Cops.

The Millions March NYC coordinators have pulled together a solid team of organizers. We have worked hard to plan a march that unifies us for the day and shows our power. We ask that all those planning Direct Actions please give time and space to this march. If you are planning an action during the march and want to check if you will be putting people in harms way, please contact us at mmdacoordination@riseup.net. This is an anonymous Direct Action Coordinator who will let you know if your action(s) would jeopardize our plans. The information is confidential and will not be shared with the larger organizing body.

In solidarity,

Millions March NYC

There’s more. A poster who uses the handle Hannibal TheCannibal writes:

A reminder to those making signs for the protest:

If you are white, please refrain from writing “We can’t breathe” or “I can’t breathe”. Try instead “He couldn’t breathe” “They can’t breathe”. This is about specifically the BLACK community, about BLACKS affected by unjust police brutality. do NOT make this about the white community– it already has enough about it.

On the same note, please keep the ‪#‎blacklivesmatter‬, rather than‪ #‎alllivesmatter‬. again, this is about the BLACK COMMUNITY. yes, all lives DO matter, but removing the focus from who is truly being affected by this injustice is unnecessary.

keep this in mind when making signs. thank you!

I don’t know whether Smith College president Kathleen McCartney will be traveling down to the Big Apple to march, but if so, one hopes she has been duly chastened.

Across the country, in Berkeley, where demonstrators have already begun to devour their own tail, one who was arrested shows where his priorities lay. Tweeting using the handle Not Frantz Fanon, he grumbles:
