WHAT: “The Next Day” Mobilization
The Oakland Uhuru Movement unites with the call put out by the Black is Back Coalition Social Justice, Peace and Reparations to engage in mass protest demanding justice for Mike Brown and the African with or without an indictment!
Bakari Olatunji, leader of the local Uhuru Movement says, “We stand up for Michael Brown, calling on police and military to withdraw from black neighborhoods across the county, including the Oakland police department. We also demand the release of all prisoners arrested during the Ferguson rebellions.”
Watch the dynamic call made by Chairman Lawrence Hamm of the People’s Organization for Progress at the Peace Through Revolution march: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axL9UXZJl2A&list=UUIsoCw05eI4pWukrXLlOfoQ
Protest the non-indictment of Darren Wilson in the killing of Michael Brown. We are outraged at the freeing of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. Just as in the murder of Alex Nieto, Andy Lopez, Eric Garner and so many more Black and Latino young men, officer Darren Wilson has been allowed to walk free. There is an epidemic of racist police killings across the country. Only the people organizing and fighting back can turn this around. Join with people across the country to say NO! to police killing and brutality.
Walmart has a massive ecological footprint. Walmart’s endless rows of plastic products and electronics demand ever intensifying oil and mineral extraction. Their stores are a major source of greenhouse gas emissions. And Walmart’s globalized supply chain model makes it the largest importer of containerized ocean cargo in the U.S., one of the leading sources of pollution.
Walmart destroys local, living economies. Walmart actively drives out of business smaller, public transit-friendly, and environmentally-sustainable neighborhood retail districts, public
markets, and “mom and pop” stores to make way for its
highly-polluting, land-intensive, auto-oriented stores. Its
impoverishment of workers and communities then guarantees customers too poor to shop anywhere else.
Walmart undermines our democracy. Walmart’s PAC funnels millions of dollars to climate deniers and other lawmakers on the wrong side of climate policy – backing the Keystone XL pipeline, supporting subsidies for big oil, blocking the EPA’s ability to regulate CO2 emissions, and protecting the fracking industry from regulation.
