Two important anniversaries of major crimes by the system are coming up in the last weeks of August:
In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans — and the people in the poorest sections of the city, mainly Black, were not only abandoned and given zero help from the government, they were treated like criminals. More than 1,000 people died in the hurricane and its wake, and hundreds of thousands suffered greatly.
In August 1955, Emmett Till, a 14-year-old Black youth from Chicago visiting relatives in Money, Mississippi, was kidnapped by white racists because he had whistled at a white woman. A few days later, Emmett Till’s body was found in a river. He had been lynched-beaten and shot to death.
The print and online issue of Revolution is out now! This special issue focuses on these two horrendous crimes. The basic themes of the special issue will be: How long will these crimes go on? There IS a way out! REVOLUTION–NOTHING LESS!
Tuesday, Sept 1 at 6 pm: Join us at Revolution Books to discuss the special issue of Revolution, and make big plans to get it out to events marking the murder of Emmett Till and Katrina, in the communities, to churches, Straight Outta Compton movie lines, and more.
FRIDAY, August 28 — Mass distribution of this special issue! Meet up at 3 pm at the Marathon Station at E. 55th & Woodland
