All Out for August Kickoff Meetings for October Month of Resistance to Mass Incarceration, Police Terror, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation

July 28, 2014 | Revolution Newspaper |


In October 2014, our resistance to mass incarceration must reverberate across the country and around the world. There must be powerful demonstrations nationwide on October 22, the National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation. Throughout October there must be panels and symposiums on campuses and in neighborhoods; major concerts and other cultural expressions; ferment in the faith communities, and more—all aimed at taking the movement to STOP mass incarceration to a much higher level. October 2014 must be a month that makes clear that thousands and thousands are willing to stand up and speak out today and to awaken and rally forth millions. It must be the beginning of the end of the mass incarceration in the U.S. (from the Call for the October 2014 Month of Resistance to Mass Incarceration, Police Terror, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation).

Kick-off meetings are happening in several cities to bring people together to work on a local, regional and national level to carry out this vision and plan—to bring into being cores of people to make this month a time when people start to look at mass incarceration differently and act on it differently. This must be a month that begins to concretely reverse this whole genocidal program and direction, a month that marks the beginning of the end of mass incarceration.

All those who have been affected personally and all those who can no longer live with these horrors must be in the house.
