University of California Davis police broke the law when they pepper sprayed nonviolent students.

Tell the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute those responsible.

This kind of act amounts to torture.

“The Whole World Is Watching! The Whole World Is Watching!”

Sign Petition

Does that chant sound familiar? It’s what the crowd at Occupy Wall Street began crying 2 nights ago when a police officer began swinging his baton into the crowd without provocation, and police allegedly pepper sprayed journalists.
Sign our letter with CREDO to NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg and the NYPD: trampling on protesters is not acceptable in Cairo or New York. Let’s protect the constitutional rights of the brave Occupy Wall Street patriots, not desecrate them.
We just broke 100,000 signatures on our letter for a good reason: Americans know the NYPD shouldn’t beat ’em – it should join ’em.
Thank you for all you do to make this movement real.
