3/31/12 - Save Our Sons Flash Mob (Five Points Marta Station, ATL)

Posted 2 years ago

Yesterday was the National Day of Protest to End Police Brutality. The family of Joetavius Stafford was present - along with FTP Movement, the Revolutionary Communist Party and members of the New Black Panther Party. There was also a black man who claimed to be an American - flanked in red, white and blue (I genuinely hope that America accepts him soon).

The cops across the street were laughing and carrying on as if a movement wasn’t unfolding before them. They assume that everyone will go on about their business soon. We will not forget. I am Joetavius Stafford. I am Troy Davis. I am Oscar Grant. I am Kathryn Johnston. I am Sean Bell.

Audio of Troy Davis’ Last Words

Heart still heavy. Rest In Uhuru.

There’s a ‘We Are Still Troy Davis’ Grassroots Town Hall Meeting tomorrow at 7pm (10.6.2011) where activists, artists, educators, justice seekers and freedom fighters will be discussing next steps. We don’t plan on Davis’ murder to be carried out without strong resistance. The movement cannot lose momentum. If you’re in the Atlanta area, I’ll see you tomorrow at Project South, 9 Gammon Ave SE (Behind Carver High School).

Peace.

A national effort to stop the execution of Troy Davis took place on September 16, 2011. The mobilization of this diverse collective was beautiful.

Troy Anthony Davis is scheduled to be put to death on September 21st, 2011. He was accused of murdering a police officer in 1989. Seven out of nine witnesses have recanted their statements. One of the two witnesses who have not, is thought to be actual trigger-man. No forensic evidence points to Davis and he has garnered support from several grassroots movements, including Amnesty International and my beautiful FTP family. In spite of the overwhelming lack of facts supporting the guilt of Davis, he remains on Georgia’s Death Row.

Shame on Savannah. Shame on Georgia. Shame on the system and those who willfully and maliciously toy with the lives of the poor and people of color.

To support Troy Anthony Davis, call 404.913.3767 and with passion say, “This is (your name) and I Am Troy Davis.” A real-time developing compilation of the drops placed over dope music will be e-blasted every 12 hours on U.S.R. Press League and Facebook until September 21st.
