National Protest of Mass Incarceration, Police Terror, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation

StopMassIncarceration.jpeg 

The October Month of Resistance to Mass Incarceration, Police Terror, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation must be like a giant STOP sign stuck right in the face of American society, day after day, so that it can’t be covered up, whited out, ignored, neutralized or suppressed.  Many different people will act in many different ways—from teach-ins, sermons and social media postings to street demonstrations.  The defiant youth who refuse any longer to accept being demonized and criminalized will be in the streets and raising their voices in other ways in October.  People whose loved ones have been murdered by cops or who have been locked away in the dungeons of this incarceration nation will join them.

Through all this and more, the message must come through to the whole society:

We REFUSE to live in a society that has no better fate for tens of millions of its people than segregation, harassment, brutalization, incarceration and outright murder at the hands of its enforcers—and we will not rest until this is STOPPED.  We refuse to make our peace with this “new Jim Crow” – a social system which targets Black, Latino and other oppressed peoples and is nothing but a slow, structural genocide.  We will not tolerate this.  WE WILL RESIST!

This is what must mark October 2014.  All who agree must act!
