All Out for October 22, 2012:
On the National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation
October 22 is the National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation. This year October 22 needs to be a day marked by varied forms of determined resistance that bring together those who bear the brunt of the brutality and murder this system enforces on the oppressed with people throughout society who don’t want to live in a society where people face this kind of injustice because of the color of their skin or because of their country of origin.
October 22, 2012 has to be more than a day of protest as usual. It must be a day when our rage at the whole criminal “injustice” system in this country is manifested. Whistles need to be heard everywhere, disrupting the normal routine against stop-and-frisk, racial profiling, police brutality and murder, and the pipeline to mass incarceration, in profiling Muslims, Arabs and South Asians, signaling a continuing determination to refuse to accept this injustice in silence. People have to figure out the ways to creatively make our determination to end all this injustice real and powerful.
Organize your schools, churches, community to stop police brutality, repression and the criminalization of a generation! Your whistles need to be heard throughout society!
