In New York, a group of activists have camped outside City Hall for a third night in a row. They are vowing to continue the Occupy City Hall encampment until Mayor Bill de Blasio agrees to cut a billion dollars from the police department’s $6 billion budget. Tatiana Hill is an organizer with Voices of Community Activists & Leaders New York.
Tatiana Hill: “We voted for City Council. We voted for this mayor. Some of them have made promises to us as communities as far as addressing the needs that we have, and that hasn’t happened. We see the harm being done to our communities via the instrument of the police, and we want to end that harm in ways that will increase healing in our communities.”
