Oct 22nd: National Day of Protest Against Police Brutality

author: Seattle October 22nd Coalition
Oct 13, 2007 10:33

Join with the people here in Seattle on October 22nd to show your resolution to not live under the gun of the police every day.

October 22nd is the day all over the country to say no more to Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation. From the CD in Seattle to the streets in Harlem there must be an outpouring of people resolutely saying "Enough is Enough!"

Refuse to watch as more and more lives are added to the list of thousands that have died by the hand of police and law enforcement across the country! Join in, build on, and support the National Day of Protest Against Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation.

Gather at Victor Steinbrueck Park at Western Ave and Virginia, just north of Pike Place Market

Gather: 4:30pm
Rally: 5:00pm
March: 5:45pm

The march ends at the King County Jail at 5th and James Ave.

Refuse to watch our brothers' and sisters' families be ripped apart and deported by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and the brutal system they are a part of!

Refuse to let injustices like the murder of Sean Bell, where he was shot 50 times by police while unarmed on his wedding day, go down without a fight!

Refuse to sit idly by while the Jena 6 are criminalized and persecuted for standing up to racism and repression in Jena, LA!

Refuse to be complicit while an entire generation of our youth are being criminalized by this system!

---------------------------------------------------------------

"People are beginning to stand up and to resist. It was very powerful when tens of thousands marched in Jena, Louisiana, on September 20—you got a sense that the people were starting something aimed at not only freeing the Jena 6 but taking on the white supremacy this system has built into its very fabric. There were protests in cities across the country on May First, when tens of thousands marched against attacks on immigrants. There have been outpourings against police murders in New York City, Chicago, Oakland and other places over the last year. And this movement of people standing up has to get stronger. And become part of a revolutionary movement. In that spirit, we call on everyone who sees this injustice for what it is to bring all this resistance together on October 22 and declare to friends, foes and those still standing on the sidelines: we refuse to take this and we are going to unite the people, both the ones directly under this threat and reality and all who are willing to stand with them, to fight till we bring all this to a halt." -- Statement by Carl Dix  http://revcom.us/a/103/o22-carl-dix-en.html

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Spectators should be aware that Judge Canova is not likely to allow any audible expression of hostility toward the prosecution witnesses or support for Toby, and that sort of thing can alienate jurors.
