Teach-In on Grand Juries, Repression & Resistance

Saturday, February 23 2-5 pm
St. Mary's Church
521 West 126th Street
Between Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway

Learn from and support the Puerto Rican Independence Movement and the young Puerto Rican cultural workers who have been served notice to appear before a Grand Jury in Brooklyn - a serious attack on the Puerto Rican Independence Movement, on the Puerto Rican community, and on all of our civil liberties. Learn how the grand jury is part of the state's attack on the progressive movement in this country. Learn about the history of resistance to this repression. How does this particular governmental attack on us fit into the overall picture of repression and fascistic developments? Learn about the attacks on December 12th, the Free Mumia Movement, the MOVE organization, and many others. There will be a FULL HOUR FOR QUESTIONS as well as ROLE PLAYING to concretize a process that many of us are not familiar with, and need to understand in order to strengthen our courage and our ability to RESIST.

Participants will include:

Ana Lopez and Youth Resisters, Hostos January 11 Grand Jury Resistance Campaign

Esperanza Martell, Iglesia San Romero de las Americas

December 12th Movement

Robert Boyle, National Lawyers Guild, NYC

Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition members

Friends of MOVE

And others to be announced
