DEFUND the NYPD : Washington Square (statues & grounds vandalized)

Interesting, the statue of Giuseppe Garibaldi [one of the leaders of Italian unification] was untouched.

(sort of) Garibaldi Plaza  in Washington Square

++ So, what’s the next step: Overthrow the mayor of NYC

The mayor has told us numerous times that if you aren’t part of the blm movement then your life doesn’t matter.
He has bankrupted the city. Our educational system is a shambles.
He has defunded and demoralized the NYPD.
Crime has skyrocketed.
Children are being shot and murdered weekly.
Today over 6 people were shot in Brooklyn, while the Mayor made sure the defaced street by Trump Tower was defaced again with blm being painted even brighter.
It’s time to to say ENOUGH in front of NY City Hall.
A group of NYC residents are organizing a Resign Now DeBlasio protest.
He can’t be impeached or removed from office permently unless he is convicted of a crime.
Resignation is the only way we will get rid of Mayor Disaster.
In order for this action and following actions to be effective, we must have a huge turnout.
We do it for rallies and celebrations. We must make time to protest or suffer the consequences.
It is NOT a partisan issue. It is a NYC resident issue.  It’s time to take back our city!
