Activism works!  It's taken years, but the Mayor & Police Chief recently went public with the suspension of police officers who beat someone up.  This wouldn't have happened without the long dedicated work of regular citizens. Get involved!  Tops is closing some local supermarkets.  This is a brilliant opportunity for worker owned stores.  Will those in power listen?
