"We Deplore the Killing"

"We Deplore The Killing" on Vimeo

We attended a city wide march against violence today at City Hall. After 11 killings in 10 days, citizens from every neighborhood in New Orleans cried out to the mayor and city officials that "Enough is Enough!" They called for more police walking the streets, and for justice and the prosecution of all murderers, despite the race or class of their victims. Others demanded that parents take more care raising their children.

The speaker in this video is from the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (founded by Martin Luther King, another victim of violence).
