Eric Garner's daughter leads march through NYC to site of her father's killing by NYPD
One of the most inspiring figures at these recent protests is Erica Garner. Posted by Xeni Jardin.
Filmmaker Aaron-Stewart Ahn (Twitter) has been documenting the protest movement in New York sparked by the killing of Eric Garner, an unarmed black man, at the hands of New York police. One of the most inspiring figures at these recent protests is Erica Garner, 24, daughter of the deceased. Last night she led a march to the site where her father was killed. When she arrived, she staged a “die-in,” which has become a symbol of this movement.
Here are more the amazing moments Aaron captured this week, a week in which demonstrators gathered and marched each night to demand accountability for Garner's death and the abuse and killing of other black men by police.
About the film from which these still images came, Aaron says,
It’s going to be about how in NYC this is not a decentralized movement but the awakening of community organizers and activists who have long served oppressed communities and come from them in union with youth movements and embracing some of the tactics of Occupy. But it is not Occupy. It is organized, and it has demands. It will cover marching over the bridge with the family of Ramarley Graham lit up by a helicopter, the demands that have been issued, a few instances of how organization is needed as documented, and will end with Erica Garner, 24 years old, becoming a protest leader herself and her tearful plea.
And below, stills from video Aaron shot “at a recent Barclays Center Nets game attended by Royal Family. Saw a young couple buy tickets from a scalper for $580.”

Last year, China’s media regulator banned TV stations from featuring […]
Android malware uses accelerometer readings to figure out if it was running on a real phone or in emulation
Malware authors have a problem: they want their software to run aggressively when no one is looking at it, but to shut down entirely if the device it's running on is actually in some malware researcher's lab.
