Black Justice Tuesday Coalition
In February of 2011 the Chad Holley beating video enraged community members. The people's righteous cry for justice has not fallen on death ears as the BJTC has remained on top of the issue every week. Last week a 4'11 one hundred pound woman of African ancestry was roughed up by HPD cops when she tried to video her husband being beaten. The officers took her cell phone removing the memory card. The group held a spirited protest calling on the spirit of victims of HPD terrorism including: Carl Hampton (Black Panther Party), Ida Delaney, Byron Gillum, Jose Campos Torres and many others. The rallying cry for the past year has been "NO COMPROMISE, NO SELLOUT, NO BACK ROOM MEETINGS"
