Revolution #248, October 23, 2011


From Up Against the Wall to Up in Their Face

The NYPD is on pace to stop and frisk over 700,000 people in 2011! That’s more than 1,900 people each and every day. More than 85% of them are Black or Latino, and more than 90% of them were doing nothing wrong when the police stepped to them. This is intolerable! It must be stopped. WE ARE STOPPING IT, AND YOU MUST JOIN US IN DOING THAT!

In the days leading into the Oct 22nd National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, the Network to Stop Mass Incarceration is calling for Stopping Stop & Frisk. We will target this illegal, unconstitutional policy with non violent civil disobedience.

If you are sick and tired of being harassed and jacked up by the cops, JOIN US. And if you are shocked to hear that this kind of thing happens in this so-called homeland of freedom and democracy—it does happen, all the damned time—you need to JOIN US too—you can’t stand aside and let this injustice be done in your name.

This Call is issued by: Carl Dix, Revolutionary Communist Party, & Cornel West, professor, author and public intellectual; Herb Boyd, author, journalist, Harlem, NY; Efia Nwangaza, Malcolm X Center, Greenville, SC; Rev Omar Wilkes.

Contact Us to Get Involved and/or to Sign This Call: Stop Mass Incarceration: We’re Better Than That! Network c/o P.O. Box 941 Knickerbocker Station, New York, New York 10002-0900, Email:; Web:; Phone: 866-841-9139 x2670.
