Feb 26, 2013--WE ARE ALL STILL TRAYVON! A Call from Carl Dix: TAKE YOUR RAGE TO THE STREETS -- WEAR YOUR HOODIE, AND SPREAD THE WORD!
February 26 is one year since the vigilante murder of Trayvon Martin—one year since George Zimmerman saw Trayvon, a 17-year-old wearing a hoodie, and decided this Black youth "...must be up to no good." One year since Zimmerman followed Trayvon and gunned him down. One year since the Sanford, Florida, cops walked Zimmerman into and out of the police station letting him go free, citing Florida's racist "Stand Your Ground" law. Only after powerful outpourings of protest spread all across the country was Zimmerman re-arrested and charged for his crime.
THIS ANNIVERSARY MUST BE MARKED BY POWERFUL OUTPOURINGS ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY! The Stop Mass Incarceration Network has called for everyone who hates the way Black and Latino youth are treated as less than human to take their outrage to the streets in cities and towns across the country at 4 pm on February 26.
• Being young, latin or black should not be a crime, we’re under attack! Wear your hoodies, take to the streets on 2/26!#justicefortrayvon
