Protesters are calling for his removal from the police force.

Protesters are expected to announce an 11-day protest called "11 Days of Rage" at Gracie Mansion on Thursday, to honor the deceased, Eric Gardner, and rally for the officer's firing.

Associated transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are expected in the vicinity of the protests. Clashes cannot be ruled out.  


Individuals in Manhattan are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized disruptions and a heightened security presence near any demonstrations, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
