TAKE TO THE STREETS WHEN THE FERGUSON GRAND JURY ANNOUNCES ITS DECISION!
The grand jury investigating the police murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson will announce its decision soon. All indications are that it will let the killer cop, Darren Wilson, walk free. If Darren Wilson is not indicted, people across the U.S. will be taking to the streets in protest -- and to shut the country down! They will be blocking streets, staging sit-ins and performances.
NO BUSINESS AS USUAL! ON CAMPUSES AND IN THE STREETS! ANYTHING LESS MEANS WE WILL LET THEM GET AWAY WITH COLD BLOODED MURDER... after murder...after murder...after murder...after murder NO! NO MORE!
Prepare now! Make signs. Call friends. Announce plans in classes. Get the Call up on Facebook and out on Twitter. Build for a mass protest on the day after the announcement. But also make plans for what you'll do the minute the announcement is made.
The minute the announcement is made stop everything you're doing. Stand up in classes to make announcements. Get on social media to express your outrage - and to connect people in Hawai`i with what's happening across the country. Gather with your friends to stand a street corner with your signs. Hang a banner.
ON THE DAY AFTER, GATHER IN FRONT OF THE HONOLULU ZOO AT 6 PM FOR A SHORT RALLY AND THEN A PROTEST IN WAIKIKI!
Governor Nixon of Missouri has declared a state of emergency and mobilized the National Guard. The emergency we must act to stop is the murder of our youth by police. Nixon’s “State of Emergency” is an outrage on top of outrages—it violates this system’s own Constitution, and is completely illegitimate suppression of righteous protest. And it must be OPPOSED by anyone with any sense of justice! Nixon's actions underscore the need for us to step up and step out to say NO MORE to police murdering our youth.
