Mass Meeting for Mass Action Called in New York City

The Stop Mass Incarceration Network has called for a come-one-come-all meeting tomorrow in New York City. The cause: to bring an end to the systematic practices that lead to the discriminatory treatment of Black Americans at the hands of the criminal justice system. Their call to meet and plan an entire week of outrage is below:

Mass Meeting Sunday December 7 to organize a Week of Mass Outrage beginning Monday
Sunday, 3 PM – December 7
West Park Presbyterian Church — 165 W 86th St, New York, NY 10024 — at the corner of Amsterdam Avenue, enter on 86th

“The actions of the people this past week have achieved a great deal.  These actions have forced everyone in this country to confront the reality of this epidemic of police brutality and murder, of mass incarceration, of the criminalization of entire peoples.”

“Now is certainly not the time to retreat or quiet down. Now is not the time to fall for the honeyed words and empty promises of the oppressors, nor to be misled by their slanders. Now is the time to intensify and to spread this movement and the righteous actions taken so far. Still more people must be involved—there are plenty of people who have not come out in struggle yet, who must and should and can be won to come out. And these actions themselves must become more determined in confronting the business-as-usual of this empire.”

“Organizing through Twitter and Facebook has its definite strengths, but people also need to get together in person and decide how to take this higher. Meeting called by the Stop Mass Incarceration Network.
