This video from the USA says about itself:
It’s Not Over | Bernie Sanders
11 February 2016
“I think we need to believe in a leader like Bernie Sanders. People are dying. This is real. We need a president that will talk about it. Bernie is a protester. He’s not scared to go up against the criminal justice system. He is not scared.” – Erica Garner

Daily The Independent in Britain writes about this today:
People have been moved to tears by this ‘spine-tingling’ Bernie Sanders campaign video
‘I can’t breathe‘.
These are the last words of the late Eric Garner, an unarmed African-American man who was killed in 2014 by NYPD officers who put him in a deadly chokehold.
His daughter Erica Garner featured in a video online on Friday in support of Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders – released by the politician’s campaign team.
In the gut-wrenching video she solemnly says:
‘I was able to see my dad die on national TV. They don’t know what they took from us. He wasn’t just someone that no one cared for him, or no one loved him; he was loved dearly.’
The four-minute video, titled “It’s not over” has already clocked up thousands of views on YouTube in the space of a few hours.
The response has been overwhelmingly positive.

Eight years ago, then-Senator Barack Obama took the noble step of banning contributions to the Democratic National Committee from lobbyists.
He said, “They will not fund my party. They will not run our White House. And they will not drown out the voice of the American people when I’m president of the United States of America.”
This week, the DNC reversed that ban and will again get large contributions from these interests. Bernie thinks that’s an unfortunate step backward. Sign our petition if you agree:
Tell the Democratic National Committee you support the restrictions put in place by President Obama that ban special interest contributions.

One of the many messages our campaign has effectively sent to the political establishment of this country is that the American people have had ENOUGH of the billionaire class buying elections.
Poll after poll tells us that citizens no longer have confidence in our political institutions. If we are to restore a vibrant democracy in this country, it is long past time to break the link between money and special interest favors in politics, and you can believe that’s just what Bernie Sanders will do as president.
In 2008 and 2012, Democrats won with President Obama’s ban on lobbyist money in place. We can do the same in 2016, and the DNC should continue to follow the president’s leadership and keep the ban in place.

Tell the Democratic National Committee you support the restrictions put in place by President Obama that ban lobbyist contributions.
Our campaign does not rely on the support of the nation’s financial elite. Our campaign is funded by almost 4 million individual contributions averaging less than $30 a piece.
It’s one of the reasons we are doing so well to this point.
