Al Sharpton of the National Action Network, stood activist, politicians, students, professors, unions and laborers who all shouted “No Justice No Peace!” charging the NYPD with police brutality. Over a 13 week period more the 1200 people submitted themselves for arrest at 1 Police Plaza. Some of the participants included David Dinkins, the former mayor of New York City, Governor David Paterson, who was then state senator, Rev Jessie Jackson, US Congressmen Charles Rangel, Assemblyman Keith Wright, Councilman Charles Barron, Percy Sutton—Inner City Broadcast, Norman Siegel—ACLU. Diallo’s death became a symbol for justice on all fronts and forever changed America.
