A Talk by Carl Dix
Mass Incarceration + Silence = Genocide!
Mass Incarceration — Its Source, The Need to Resist Where Things Are Heading and The Revolution We Need!
- 2.4 million people, most of them Black and Latino, in prison!
- Racial profiling a pipeline to prison for generations of our youth!
- Former prisoners discriminated against on virtually every front!
Carl Dix says, “All this comes down to a slow genocide which could easily accelerate.”
Dix will break all this down and speak to where things are headed if action is not taken. And he will talk about “what kind of revolution is needed to eliminate mass incarceration and all the brutality and misery this capitalist system enforces on humanity once and for all.”
