February 2—Anniversary of the NYPD Murder of Ramarley Graham

February 26—Anniversary of the Racist Vigilante Lynching of Trayvon Martin

As we approach Black History Month 2013, more Black people are in prison, in jail, or on probation or parole than there were slaves in the U.S. in 1850! Day after day after day, the police stop and frisk, harass, railroad into prison, beat down, and murder Blacks and Latinos, especially the youth. In February, there are anniversaries of two of the thousands of murders at the hands of law enforcement and racist vigilantes. ¡Basta Ya! Join with the Stop Mass Incarceration Network and others across the country in taking to the streets on the anniversaries of the NYPD murder of Ramarley Graham and the racist vigilante lynching of Trayvon Martin.
