"Nosotros decimos ¡BASTA YA!"

Actualizado 4 de julio de 2013 | Periódico Revolución | revcom.us


El asesinato de Trayvon Martin y los 2.4 millones de personas encarceladas dejan en claro que han tachado y tratado a una generación entera de jóvenes negros y latinos como una "generación de sospechosos" a la que matar y encarcelar. Todo eso no solamente es un problema de los negros sino de todos aquellos que se interesan en la justicia; no es una tragedia al azar.
