"Our only hope today lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit and go out into a sometimes hostile world declaring eternal hostility to poverty, racism, and militarism."
Martin Luther King
March and rally against police brutality and racism on the day we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. - keep his legacy alive!
Demand an end to all forms of racist wars: from the domestic war waged against the poor and working Black and Latino communities to the imperialist wars on the poor and working people all over the world.
This is part of a national call to action - the #4MileMarch happening all over the country to bring awareness to America's epidemic of racial profiling and police brutality, and to honor all those who have been injured or died as a result of police violence.
Stand in solidarity with the struggle against racist police brutality at home and the struggle of oppressed people on all continents to liberate themselves from racist violence and injustice.
Injustice here is injustice everywhere – this global system of oppression must come to an end.
Stand up and say, not one more! #BlackLivesMatter #HonorDrKing #EndRacism2015
