“The Struggle Against Racism and Repression”

U.S. politicians and the corporate media never get tired of repeating that the United States is the model of democracy for the whole world to follow. But the U.S. has more people behind bars than any other country. More than 2.2 million people—nearly all working class people and the majority African American and Latino—are in jails or prisons here today. Police murder and brutality is rampant, such as the case of Gary King, Jr., brutally killed by an Oakland PD officer, Patrick Gonzales, in September. Many well-known political prisoners, including Mumia Abu Jamal, Leonard Peltier, the Jena 6, Cuban 5, San Francisco 8, Angola 3, Marilyn Buck, Hugo Pinell, Mutulu Shakur, Jamil Al-Amin, Chip Fitzgerald, Sami Al-Arian and others continue to be jailed and prosecuted by the U.S. government.

Join us for a public meeting to learn more about these cases and the struggle against racism and repression.

Featuring:
- Keith Shanklin, Justice for Gary King, Jr. Campaign and spokesperson for the King family
- Richard Brown, San Francisco 8 defendant
- Representative of the Angola 3 Defense Committee
- National Committe to Free the Cuban 5
- Video “Til the Jena 6 are free, neither are we”
