March 24, 2013, Brooklyn, NY. The March for Justice for Kimani Gray was heavily attended by members of the Revolutionary Communist Party. Simmering tensions between the RCP and #BrooklynProtest organizers exploded at the rally and subsequent march, ignited by the RCP's selling their newspaper, Bob Avakian videos, and T-shirts.

The nearly hour-long series of speakouts was dominated by RCP members, to the visible annoyance of #BrooklynProtest regulars. Conflicts erupted between members of the RCP on the one hand and members of the New Black Panther Party and #BrooklynProtest organizers Fatimah Shakur and Jose LaSalle on the other.

At 5:15 Fatimah Shakur screams in the face of RCPer Travis Morales by their table, to the amusement of the police.
At 7:07 Josh Einiger of ABC's Eyewitness News attempts an interview with Fatimah Shakur, failing to recognize her, and assuming she is an East Flatbush member angered at "outside agitators" in general. ABC actually used their snippet of footage and cast Shakur's words into this imagined context, completely misrepresenting her. http://bit.ly/14kzSDD
At 9:52 RCPer Jamel Mims defends the RCP's newspaper sales, citing the Black Panthers as precedent.
