We had a good presence at the MLK Day Parade, but now we have to re-energize the movement and build on the momentum! For photos from the contingent check out http://www.worldcantwaithonolulu.blogspot.com. Police brutality and murder has to STOP!
In Hawai`i, like elsewhere, police are literally getting away with murder. Victims are vilified and police are back on the job. Police continue to brutalize civilians and sexually assault women but such cases of "police misconduct" or generally dismissed or, at most, result in a reprimand.
On February 8-9 more than 170 people attended a conference called by the national Stop Mass Incarceration Network in Georgia and a call for a National No Business as Usual day was called for April 14th. Read the Call and find out about the meeting at http://www.stopmassincarceration.net.
On Sunday, February 22nd, there will be a meeting to discuss the Call and make plans for "No Business as Usual" in Honolulu. The meeting will be held at Revolution Books from 3-6pm. Come with your questions and ideas.
