June 5: National Day of Justice for Trayvon!Added to the calendar on Friday May 25th, 2012 9:21 AM
June 5 will be 100 days since George Zimmerman, a vigilante, wannabe cop murdered Trayvon Martin. 100 days since Zimmerman racially profiled Trayvon Martin, stalked him and gunned him down. It took weeks of people all over the country taking to the streets in outrage to force the authorities to arrest Zimmerman and charge him for murdering Trayvon. We cannot stop now! Justice for Trayvon! Take to the streets!
The killing of Trayvon Martin and the 2.4 million in prison make clear that there is a whole generation of Black and Latino youth who have been marked and treated as a “generation of suspects” to be murdered and jailed. This is not an issue for Black people alone but for all who care about justice; it is not a random tragedy. We say NO MORE!
MASS INCARCERATION + SILENCE = GENOCIDE!
