Organized to coincide with the One Year Aniversary or the DNC- Rage/Ozomatli Frenzy of Rubber Bullets, this via dolorosa has youth issues at its heart and Mumia on its mind.
We are a coalition of different youth organizations and individuals
coming together in solidarity to march and speak out against the lack
of support youth receive from government and corporations in America.
We are against the lack of education for the economically
disadvantaged. We are against the special interests of the private
sector that control both government and the media and hide the truth
of youth and community needs to satisfy private profits. We are
against police brutality. We are against sweatshops and the
exploitation of immigrants in the favor of big business. We are
against the expansion of the prison industrial complex that is in
collusion with the government to turn a young generation, especially
blacks and minorities, into slave labor in order to compete with the
exploitation of workers abroad. We are against the imprisonment of
Mumia Abu-Jamal and other political prisoners who have been
wrongfully incarcerated in order to silence the truth of their
words. We are against the racially driven war on drugs which turns
entire communities into criminals and avoids to deal with the real
problem of lack of education, health, and spiritual care for those in
We are marching to show that youth are united and organized. The media's
portrayal of us as uninformed and unresponsive and definitely not proactive
could not be farther from the truth. We are going to use the time and space
of this march to voice our concerns and visions and allow others to listen
and join into a multi-cultural/class/race/gender/sexuality movement.
The march will take place on Tuesday August 14, 2001 through the
streets of downtown Los Angeles. We will gather at Olympic and
Figueroa at 2pm, march at 3pm, and rally at Pershing Square (Olive &
5th St.) at approximately 5pm. Speakers and performances by musical
bands will follow.
