Thousands March In Silence Against “Stop and Frisk”

June 17, 2012

Thousands of  New Yorkers of all ages, races and faiths marched in silence from 110th Street and Lennox Ave in Harlem down 5th Ave to 79th Street to demand an end to the “Stop and Frisk” policy of the NYPD and Mayor Mike Bloomberg.  The silent march was modeled on a 1917 march   held to protest lynching.

The march began at 3:00 and ended sometime around 5:00.

The following photos were taken at various stages in the march.
