Today, the New Yorker Union is undertaking a half-day work stoppage. From 9 A.M. to 1 P.M., union members will not participate in the production or the promotion of content for the print magazine or the Web site.

As workers, as journalists, and as members of The NewsGuild of New York, we have witnessed shameful attacks on the civil rights and liberties of the people of this country, including brazen violations of the First Amendment.

These are not isolated tragedies and random violent acts; they are the result of centuries of anti-Black racism that shapes our nation’s history.
