Strength & Solidarity in Jena
I hope everybody went and got their black and green on today in solidarity with the Jena 6.
The injustice is appalling, but the nationwide solidarity is monumental.
NOLA organizers have been working tirelessly for months. Mad props to Safe Streets , FFLIC, and all those who've worked, and continue to work, to not only seek justice, but transform its meaning.
Even the New York Times ran a front page piece in its online edition highlighting the mass mobilization today in Jena, Louisiana.
And Pittsburgh rapper/activist Jasiri X recently released an ill track based on the case:
Mumia's got commentary on it.
And the young men and their families, who've stood strong throughout this entire ordeal, continue to offer their thanks
