Across the U.S., Black, Latino, and poor neighborhoods are treated like occupied territory by increasingly militarized armies of law enforcement. People are criminalized and brutalized for their perceived status – socioeconomic, immigration, mental health, and/or racial, gender, or sexual identity. People living in our communities, especially youth, are routinely stopped, harassed, beaten, and even killed.

The violence of the cops, the courts, the FBI, La Migra, and homeland security is intensifying. Our resistance must intensify as well! Every year, thousands of people nationwide express their outrage, creativity, and resistance in response to the crimes of this system. People speak out and perform, march in the streets, and more. The October 22nd Coalition to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation embraces and encourages any and all such expressions of people’s righteous outrage.

As said by the mother of Gil Barber, gunned down by a deputy in High Point, NC in 2001, “October 22nd is OUR day.” Organize against these injustices! Break down the barriers between communities that these crimes seek to strengthen!

Mobilize people of all communities in the most visible way, on OCTOBER 22ND, 2011, FIGHT BACK!
