A rally was held in Baltimore March 7 to demand justice for George Floyd on the eve of killer cop Derek Chauvin’s trial in Minneapolis. The protest was part of a call to action from the National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression (NAARPR). Peoples Power Assembly member Joyce Butler recited this piece at the rally.

Keep Our Eyes on Minneapolis

Monday begins the trial of a racist coward
(I refuse to say his name)
Let’s call him “The Murderer in Blue”
The “Neck Rider”…
The Aggressive Bigot who has had many a run-in with Blacks.

Let’s keep our eyes on Minneapolis!
Let’s keep our eyes on Minneapolis.
We need to watch the trial —
Jury selection begins on Monday.
Let’s keep our eyes on Minneapolis!

First Degree Murder!
Let’s keep our eyes on Minneapolis —
We cannot fall asleep.
We cannot be lulled into quietness … we cannot nod off.

Remember the words of George Floyd —
“I CAN’T BREATHE!”
Remember the racial & very hurtful jokes.
Let’s keep our eyes on Minneapolis —

KARMA IS COMING KILLER —
YOU ARE INVITED TO THE KARMA CAFE
BEGINNING ON MONDAY —
THERE ARE NO MENUS …
YOU WILL GET EXACTLY WHAT YOUR ASS DESERVES!

KEEP YOUR EYES ON MINNEAPOLIS!
