Viral: An Art Show Exposing Real Time Censorship through Free Expression

Cósmica artists were part of an art show in Staten Island this past January that aimed to give support for We Copwatch in light of the tragedy surrounding Eric Garner’s death at the hands of police.  There was no indictment in the death of the unarmed Garner and since the string of events, Ramsey Orta, the man who filmed cops putting Garner in a chokehold, has been harassed by police.
