On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans. The world looked on in horror as George Bush and the system he represents cold-bloodedly let people, mostly poor and black, needlessly suffer and die. A savage crime was committed and it is a crime still in progress. Katrina concentrates the larger reality facing Black people in the U.S. — this system has nothing for black people but more bitter, brutal betrayal, and new levels of suffering and oppression. We urgently need resistance to all this! Now!

Harlem- On August 29, 2007 let’s join people across this country and say loud and clear- Katrina- Never Forgive – Never Forget! Let’s call out this criminal system for what it did in New Orleans. Let’s say loud and clear we will not accept any part of this system’s genocidal assault on black people: We will not accept Sean Bell’s murder by the police- not the modern day lynching of six black youth in Jena, Louisiana- not the recent Supreme Court ruling against school desegregation- not the criminalization of a generation of youth,- not any of this.

On Wednesday, August 29

From 3:00 to 7:00, from Frederick Douglas Avenue to Broadway along 125th Street. (Meet at Frederick Douglass and 125th.)

It’s time to stand up, open our mouths, speak the truth, and start fighting back like we mean it.
