A Call to Voices of Conscience: Stop Police Terror!
 
 
Dec. 9, 2015 Chicago
Dec. 9, 2015 Chicago
The police murders, brutality and torture of people across the country, especially Black and Latino, and the government cover-ups, have reached a point where the scope and scale over a long period of time shows how deeply this is entrenched across the country. Much of the country is being rocked by daily revelations about the execution of Laquan McDonald by Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke; the Chicago police murders of Ronald “Ronnieman” Johnson and Philip Coleman, and the state-sponsored concealment and authorities’ cover-ups of their murders. Police terror and mass incarceration are part of a slow genocide aimed particularly at Black people, and it must be STOPPED NOW!  As Revolution newspaper recently wrote, echoing Nina Simone’s famous song, Mississippi Goddam! - “Chicago Goddam!”
We are calling on ALL people of conscience and prominence, of all nationalities, to speak clearly to the country and world: “STOP Police Terror! Which Side Are You On?” together with Stop Mass Incarceration Network and many others doing the same in many cities and towns, in the spirit of Quentin Tarantino, who said on October 24, 2015, “I am a human being with a conscience and when I see murder, I cannot stand by and I have to call the murdered, the murdered and the murderers, the murderers.” And then he stood firm in the face of a campaign by police, Fox News and others in many areas to denounce, and at times threaten him.

Tarantino stood with 100 courageous families from across the country who have had loved ones murdered by police; defiant students and youth; other prominent people such as Eve Ensler, Ed Asner, actor Mark Ruffalo, author Joyce Carol Oates and attorney Martin Garbus,  and many others from all walks of life.
Black Friday, on Chicago's "Magnificent Mile", which all of a sudden was really magnificent, as people Shut Sh*t Down! on one of the most important "shopping" days of the year!
Your voice is needed! Whether it’s performing your art, writing an op-ed piece, speaking from the pulpit, having Stop Mass Incarceration Network come speak at your school, campus or organizational meetings - all the while spreading this on social media - we all stand together with the courageous people, especially the youth, who are rising up against these murders across the country, some of whom face serious charges from the same authorities responsible for the police murders and their cover-ups.
 
We would like to talk with you as soon as possible about this. Our aim is to get things to the point where there are millions who both feel in their bones that this system of intimidation, terror and murder is INTOLERABLE… and are willing to step out and act in all different ways to stop this, and have the ways to do so. In other words, we aim to change the whole tenor and direction of society. That is what we are calling for. And that is worth going all-in on.
