Magic Island, by 9am
Bring the Spirit of Ferguson to the MLK Day Parade!
#Black Lives Matter!
#We Can't Breathe!
Honolulu's MLK Day Parade is seen by thousands of residents and tourists who watch a parade march from Magic Island to Kapiolani Park.
This year we aim to bring a spirit of resistance to police murder and brutality to the parade!
Every 28 hours the police murder another unarmed civilian in the U.S. Most are Black or Brown youth. This cannot be allowed to continue!
Join the contingent before 9am at Magic Island. Look for the flatbed truck with the big blue earth flags.
Bring your signs, drums, bullhorns and noisemakers. Ride on the truck or march, skateboard, or skate. Bring your friends, colleagues, and families. Don't forget the water and sunscreen.
The march begins at Magic Island and ends at Kapiolani Park where there is a unity rally, food and booths. If you want a ride back to Magic Island right after the parade ends there will be rides.
Join in building a movement to stop the injustice of mass incarceration and police brutality; and the racially biased policies and practices of the police, the courts and the U.S. legal system; and to support the rights of prisoners and the formerly incarcerated.
