National Day of Protest against police brutality scheduled for October 22
The 19th annual Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminilization of a Generation will take place on Wednesday Oct. 22.
The event will be hosted by the Stop Mass Incarceration Network, a building national movement to stop the injustice of mass incarceration and police brutality throughout the country.
This is a day when people from cities and towns across the country– youth from inner city high schools and those who have been pushed out of the school system are joining with college students, parents of those who have been murdered and incarcerated, as well as people of conscience in city centers and in the neighborhoods all over.
The Day of Protest 2014 is unfolding during the first October Month of Resistance to Mass Incarceration, Police Terror, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation, initiated by Prof. Cornel West and Carl Dix, representative of the Revolutionary Communist Party. Stop Mass Incarceration Network has been in the forefront of taking on the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson Mo., Eric Garner’s murder by police in NYC, and connecting these struggles against police terror across the country with the whole Month of Resistance movement.
The event is part of the organization’s October Month of Resistance, where they call attention to the injustices that plague people of color across the country throughout the month.
