The people were on the streets of 110th street and 5th avenue to stop the massive police abuse of people of color and to end the city’s “Stop and Frisk” policy.  It was a broad based movement with the support of the NAACP, Communities United for Police Reform and many other community leaders; they all marched to end needless loss the innocent lives of many people who are being victimized by the “Stop and Frisk” practice. Their goal was, once and for all, to show their unity and support and to try to make a difference in the New York neighborhood.

The “End Stop and Frisk March” kicks off with many people holding their posters, banners, and signs high.  Some of the slogans that could be read were:“NYPD: Hands Off The Homeless!”, “NYPD: Hands Off Our Dads!”, “NYPD Keep Your Hands Off Me.”, There were also many others including the posters from the NAACP that read “Stop Racial Profiling End Stop & Frisk” at the front side of the banner, and in the back, the poster showed three well known faces of people who have been stopped and frisked by the NYPD police: their names were Trayvon Martin, Sean Bell and Amadou Diallo.

As the protesters kept on walking, many had refreshments and bottled water just to cool themselves from the summer heat, It was a silent march, and as they started to walk on 5th Avenue, there was reverence among the marchers. So they started walking downtown and there was some talking going on here and there as they began to enjoy a wonderful time being out there for a good cause.

The march route covered 31 blocks; once and a while, the marchers stopped because of traffic ahead, but otherwise they continued to their destination.

During that time they kept walking until they arrived at the block of 5th avenue and 80th Street. At that point, some of marchers and onlookers began chanting, and they started to gather in the front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but some of the marchers and protesters signal to the chanters to hush because it was a silent march, Soon all the marchers continued on their way.
