Million Youth March

(50 Minutes) Million Youth March In the week since the New York City police were depolyed to break-up the Million Youth March in Harlem, New York, reaction has been heated throughout the country. NY City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani is defending the police action and Police Commissioner Howard Saffir continues to attack march organizer, Khallid Muhammad, for preaching hate.
