We are gaining ground against the curfew bill! Councilmembers have already made some changes in response to community opposition. I'm ready to testify tomorrow morning at 10am in City Council. This is what I'm going to say:
Good morning. I’m a medical editor, I live in Southwest, and I’m with Occupy Philly.
In order to support the curfew bill, we would have to be able to trust that the police would not use racial profiling when enforcing it, and that the media would tell us if the police abused their power. I don’t think that trust is realistic.
