Sean Bell Grand Jury Announcement - MONDAY & TUESDAY - The whole world is watching!!

The DA will be holding a press conference at 11 AM at the Queens Kew County courthouse on MONDAY to announce the charges. October 22 parents Nicholas Heyward and Juanita Young plan to hold a parents press conference at ll:30 AM, and People's Justice is planning to hold their press conference at 12 noon.

We should call in a big way for EVERYONE to be out there MONDAY -- this is the moment when the whole world will be watching and they should see a powerful statement that the people of this city are not going to accept anything less than complete justice in this case.

TUESDAY is also important but will be much more powerful if MONDAY marks a bit political divide and the determination of the people is expressed in visual form (banners etc.) and from parents and many people. There will be national and international media there (the TDA on Saturday got national coverage and it was overall positive). There is already talk of changing venue and we know how few cops who even get indicted actually get convicted and sentenced -- going forward requires the people expressing their determination that justice will be demanded in the streets. Tuesday, 5 PM, Union Square. Sellers should meet at Revolution Books at 4PM to go over to Union Square.

"Our need for racial justice is rooted in the decimation and annihilation of our natives peoples, in the historic and monumental enslavement and marginalization of African peoples, it informs our excuse to go to war without counting the dead or measuring the destruction, and it is the weight we put on the back of every so-called illegal laborer who harvests our sustenance, builds our shelters, and who will ultimately dig our graves."-- Walter Mosley
