New York's Haitian community take it to the bridge to protest a year of mortal policing.

On April 20th 2000 10,000 Haitians and other New Yorkers marched across the Brooklyn Bridge to demand an end to police brutality and the resignation of Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. Provoked by the killing and vilification of Haitian-American Patrick Dorismond, who was gunned down by a New York City policeman March 17, the march also commemorated the numerous other recent victims of the New York Police Department, including Haitian Abner Louima (sodomized in a Brooklyn police station) and West African (Guinean) Amadou Diallo (shot 41 times by Bronx police).The size and strength of the march demonstrate popular fury - against both the violent and discriminatory practices of the NYPD and their frequent immunity from prosecution.
