Black People’s Grand Jury must hear the case of police murder victim Alva Braziel in Houston, Texas 


With bullhorn and banners in hand, on Saturday July 8, militant protesters marched on the spot where Houston cops murdered 38-year-old Alva Braziel on July 9, 2016.

It was a one year anniversary resistance march and rally.

For the second time in three months, a white people’s grand jury in Harris County, Houston, Texas has no-billed two cops: L. Lopez and E. Macias.

These pigs pumped fourteen bullets into the body of Alva Braziel while his hands were up.

Some of those shots hit the 38-year-old black father while he lay on the ground mortally wounded.

Nevertheless, the pigs still handcuffed him.

Back in March and again on July 29, 2017, prosecutor Kim Ogg, the new female pro-death penalty district attorney presented to grand juries cases she knew would not win indictments.

 

Securing indictments was never the intent.

Reinforcing the colonial relationship that Africans have to the State is always the unstated goal of unindicted police murderers.

The Houston Branch of the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement (InPDUM-Houston) was invited to attend and speak at a Black Lives Matter March for Human Rights on Saturday, May 20, 2017 in Downtown Houston, TX.

The Human Rights March was organized as a unity event to center blackness in all of the issues that we are facing in this country, state, city and all while trying to survive under U.S. president Donald Trump, according to its organizers.

The local InPDUM Houston branch decided that this would be a good opportunity to discuss human rights in the form of self-determination and freedom for African people as points 1 and 2 of InPDUM’s Revolutionary National Democratic Program of state: “We demand all rights consistent with being a free people, rights which include self-determination and self-government as the highest expression of genuine democracy. We demand independence in our lifetime. We demand international democratic rights and self-determination for African people throughout the world.”
