EVENT ALERT: NYC Sponsors Bus To Atlanta to Plan Action Against Police Brutality

By Gloria Dulan-Wilson

Hello All:
The Stop Mass Incarceration Network, a group formed to address the rise in private prisons, and Black men (and women) being incarcerated for crimes that would normally be considered a misdemeanor, or for specious allegation - is convening a two day planning conference in Atlanta, Georgia, centered around resistance to police brutality and judicial injustice.  The chartered bus left NYC Thursday evening and arrived in Atlanta, GA around 12:30 on Friday, where they hooked up with  The Stop Mass Incarceration Network's Meet and Greet event at the Castleberry Inn & Suites
Below is the agenda for the weekend.  Any of you who are either planning to travel to Atlanta this weekend, are already in Atlanta, but didn't know this was happening, or who have relatives in Atlanta who should be part of this momentous event, please make sure you share this with them. 

Stay Blessed &

The Stop Mass Incarceration Network (SMIN) has issued a draft Call for a Shutdown Day on April 14, a day of massive resistance all over the country, with students at thousands of schools going on strike, taking over buildings and more; and people gathering in cities nationwide to disrupt America’s business as usual. And SMIN is developing a plan of resistance to build up to April 14.
If you want to see the horror of police wantonly murdering people STOPPED and are ready to get down to serious work to STOP it, come to this planning meeting in Atlanta. Be part of enriching and further developing the plans for the Shutdown Day in April. And be part of developing a plan for resistance that builds up momentum to a powerful day of resistance in April.
The authorities have declared that the normal routine of this society will continue to include wanton police murder of Black and Latino people. This normal routine must be disrupted.
Come to Atlanta on February 7 & 8, & be part of planning out how to do that!
