But now you can do in solidarity with protestors against the most recent race charged police shooting.

Black New Yorkers demanded the police chief's resignation at a rally today and unveiled plans to shut down Wall Street after police killed a black man on his wedding day when they fired 50 bullets at three unarmed men.
Sean Bell, 23, who was out for a bachelor party, was killed on November 25, hours before he was to marry the mother of his two children. Two friends with him were wounded, one critically.
The Queens District Attorney is investigating the incident.
The December 12th Movement, a human rights group that organised the protest, wants Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly to step down and called for a "Day of black outrage'' on December 22 that would "shut Wall Street down''.
