USA: Erica Garner, daughter of police chokehold victim, dies aged 27

Black Lives Matter activist Erica Garner, the daughter of Eric Garner, who died after a police chokehold in New York in 2014, passed away at Woodhull Hospital in Brooklyn on Saturday. The 27-year-old was admitted to hospital last week when she suffered a heart attack triggered by an asthma attack. In an interview outside the hospital, mourner Ayodeile Ericsson said, “I really do applaud the... Еще work that she has done since her father's passing and it speaks volumes as to sometimes you can take a tragedy and turn it into a benefit for other people to learn and to experience and to be better for themselves and for the community because all black lives matter.” Garner became an activist after her father died when police used a chokehold during his arrest for allegedly selling loose cigarettes. His final words, “I can’t breathe”, became a rallying call for those protesting police brutality against African Americans in the United States.
