O22 events throughout the USA!

SMIN banner
The Stop Mass Incarceration Networks calls on everyone to support and be part of the annual October 22 protests against police brutality, repression, and the criminalization of a generation. In the face of an intolerable situation in which police murder unarmed youth of color yet continue to go free... in which millions more continue to be sent off to prison, and in this way disproportionately affects the Black, Latino, Native American and other oppressed communities... and in which increasing repression in all aspects of life has been intensified by the Obama regime, with both Trump AND Clinton promising worse... this resistance must grow to include ALL segments of society, and it MUST BE STOPPED!
 
Here is a growing list of actions that will take place that day. Please find one near you and GET INVOLVED!

Call From Gloria Pinex--Mother of Darius Pinex Murdered by Chicago Police January 2011:

Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired of: 
Murder by Police, 
Strung Out On Drugs. 
Trumped (on), Stomped (on), Framed, 
Being Controlled, 
Seeing Our Babies Dying to This System, 
No More Telling Us Who to Vote For
For the last 5 years I have struggled with my son’s death by police. Darius was murdered by the CPD. I have had a long fight for justice for me and my family. As I fought I learned no police officer will face any time in jail because they are protected by this system.
The reason I am standing up and calling on you to join me is because this has to stop! There are far more innocent people being murdered out here on these streets and around the country by cops. The system has no future for us. We need a change.    1134 people were killed by police last year alone. 
        Enough is Enough!                        
                   They killing us every day.                                
                    So I ask you, “Which side are you on?”

UPDATED 10/4: One released, Three Still Held: Four Arrested Protesting The Murder of Carnell Snell, Jr. in Los Angeles

We just received an update from the Revolution Club in Los Angeles: 

Urgent! Members of the Revolution Club and one other woman who were protesting the criminal murder of Carnell CJ Snell are STILL in police custody! Call the 77th Precinct NOW (213.473.9308) to demand they be released IMMEDIATELY. One woman has just now FINALLY been released.  The police originally set bail at $5,000 each and are now saying they won't accept it!! They are dragging this out in what can only be understood as illegal preventative detention and punishment for having stood up against the police's murderous actions.


These four were arrested last night righteously standing up against this cold blooded murder... they were arrested just hours after the LAPD from a nearby precinct murdered another 18 year old, whose name has not been released.

The police are on a murderous rampage! It is right to stand up against this - and everyone must have the backs of these revolutionaries and protesters.

Those in custody include two members of the Revolution Club, CJ Snell's cousin and neighbor and close friend. This is an outrage that can no longer be allowed to stand!

Call the 77th Precinct NOW (213.473.9308) spread the word throughout all society. Contribute to the bail fund (need to raise $400 more to cover the bail if they decide to accept this) HERE.
