In the midst of Derek Chauvin's trial for the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, police have killed another unarmed black man, Daunte Wright, in Brooklyn Center, just 12 miles from Minneapolis.
Once again, the people take to the streets demanding justice, the media works to criminalize the victim, the lawyers descend on the family to get paid and police departments across the country continue to carry out their mandate to contain the colonized African community and maintain the status quo.
We talk with Jamaal Abegaz from his home in Moorhead, Minnesota.
In 2020, the city of Moorhead presented Jamaal with their Human Rights Award for his work advocating for the human rights of the African community in the aftermath of the police killing of George Floyd.
Jamaal is now an organizer with the African People's Socialist Party, and was preparing to travel to the Minneapolis area to promote the Uhuru Movement's program for Black Community Control of the Police.
