After George Floyd’s Killing, Paterson Activists Still Seeking ‘Justice for Jameek’

Activists in Paterson rallied peacefully earlier this evening on the steps of the Free Public Library with a local focus, seeking justice not only for George Floyd but also Jameek Lowery.

“We’re out here to raise our voices for for what is happening in Minneapolis,” said School Board Commissioner Corey Teague (pictured).

But also, he said – “We want justice for Jameek,” he added to cheers. “They’ve had our foot on our neck for too long.”

The Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office last year ruled the 2019 death of 27-year-old Jameek Lowery — who walked into a Paterson Police Station and wound up unresponsive — a medical event.

People’s Organization for Progress (POP) (and U.S. Senate candidate) Founder Larry Hamm also invoked Jameek Lowery in a bulhorn call and return.

“Jameek,” he yelled.

“Lowery!” a large crowd yelled back.

“Jail the killer cops,” Hamm yelled later.
