Thousands of people have taken to the streets of New York City since Saturday protesting the death of a Minneapolis man in the hands of the police. CrownHeights.info will be posting basic updates and critical information regarding the protest and any threats to the Crown Heights Jewish community.
These updates do not count for any smaller splinter groups, or people who decide to do criminal acts on their own. Please continue to take extreme caution and maintain heightened awareness.
(As the protests have moved away from Crown Heights and protests have remained largely peaceful in NYC, I will be signing off for tonight. For further updates, subscribe to CrownHeights.info’s whatsapp updates by texting “subscribe” and your name to 718-285-8000.)
