SHOW YOUR OUTRAGE IN THE STREETS!
CONVENE JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON MARTIN
When the verdict comes down,
we will #riseup4trayvon
No to racism, police brutality and racial profiling!
Jobs and schools, not jails!
End mass incarceration and deportations!
End stop & frisk and the war on youth!
Plan to hold justice assemblies in downtown squares, in communities, at schools and at busy street corners in your city or town. Distribute flyers; hold youth and community speak outs, marches and protests. The murder of Trayvon Martin should be generalized with other local cases of atrocities against youth, especially youth of color.
It’s critical at this moment for the movement to define this issue rather than the big business media or those who have little interest in defending Black, Latino/a, Indigenous and poor youth.
We are issuing this emergency call prior to the verdict because we have little faith in the so-called justice system which is riddled with racism and class bias; a system that jails over 2.3 million mainly people of color and keeps another 5 million under the repressive thumb of parole and probation status and a system that rarely successfully prosecutes racist police or wanna be cops like Zimmerman.
Show your outrage and solidarity in the streets & on social media. Use the hashtags:
