Youth fight back on Rosa Parks Day

Published Dec 7, 2006 10:36 PM

A march was held in New York to commemorate Rosa Parks Day, Dec. 1, and continue that legacy of struggle. Organized by FIST (Fight Imperialism, Stand Together) leader and high school student Mia Cruz, the march focused on the criminalization of youth, demanding removal of the roving police scanners recently implemented in New York City schools. Students have suffered physical and emotional abuse at the hands of the cops who enforce the scanners, as well as have had their personal property, such as cell phones, markers and iPods, confiscated.
