Breaking the Silence

What's Behind the Wave of Police, Security, and Vigilante Killings of Black People?

Advice From Reliable Sources

Operation Ghetto Storm: 
2012 Annual Report on the extrajudicial killing of 313 Black people by police, security guards and vigilantes
The Report exposes how every 28 hours someone inside the United States, employed or protected by the U.S. government kills a Black child, woman or man. 

These state-sanctioned killings are the casualties of what we call  "Operation Ghetto Storm," a perpetual war to invade, occupy and pacify Black communities-- much like the U.S. invades and occupies the Middle East. 

"Operation Ghetto Storm" written by Arlene Eisen, with preface by Kali Akuno, is published by the Malcolm X Grassroots Committee which has other important resources at www.mxgm.org.
