*During the Civil Rights Movement, a major turning pint occurred with the Children's Crusade of 1963, when thousands of school children walked out of school to engage in nonviolent direct action in the streets of Birmingham, Alabama.
November 22, 2015 marks the one-year anniversary of the murder of Tamir Rice, a twelve-year-old black youth in Cleveland, Ohio, gunned down by police. Soon, a grand jury will decide the fate of the officers who murdered Tamir Rice, and the skids are being greased to let them walk free. This is a crossroads as to whether the routine murder, violence and terror against our children will be acceptable in this society or not.
His killers -- who haven't even been charged -- are now being groomed to never set foot in court, as the district attorney on the case has produced reports by two "experts" to justify the murder because the police in question "believed that Rice posed a threat of serious harm or death."
The Stop Mass Incarceration Network is calling on you to join a historic Children's March, this time against the New Jim Crow and the slow genocide of police murder targeting our youth.
If our youth are not too young to be gunned down in the street by marauding police at twelve-years-old in Ohio -- if they are not too young to be placed in handcuffs at six-years-old in Georgia -- if they are not too young to be assaulted by police and dragged out of class in South Carolina -- they are not to young to fight against the system that puts a target on their backs!
