Another NYC Activist Killed

In Culture jamming, Direct action, New York City, Progressive Politics, US Politics on December 4, 2006 at 1:00 pm

I meant to post over the weekend…

Eric Ng was a friendly and incredibly sharp activist and organizer. As he was riding his bike on Friday night he was struck at incredible speed by a drunk driver who had careened onto the bike path running parallel with NY’s West Side Highway. Eric passed at the scene of the accident.

I knew him more socially than through direct action channels, but it was clear to me from our first conversation that he had a great understanding of the issues and was right on point. This is another difficult loss in recent weeks for the NYC activist community.

Eric, I wish we had more of a chance… You will be missed, and I know I and our mutual friends will honor you in every way possible.
