Background
On Thursday, March 19, 2009, police attacked members of the International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement (InPDUM) in the gallery of the City Council during the City Council session where Mayor Nutter was announcing his 2010 budget. International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement members were holding signs protesting Mayor Nutter’s budget, which cuts essential services for the African population while spending more than one billion dollars a year for police and prisons attacking the black community. Subsequent to the police attack, InPDUM international organizer Diop Olugbala (aka Wali Rahman), and member Shabaka Mnombatha (aka Franklin Moses), were brutally arrested and are being charged with aggravated assault on police!

Follow-up
We need your support. This is not just an attack on these two brothers; this is an attack on the human rights of the entire community.

City Hall Meeting

Did anyone attend this meeting? If so, I'd like to hear your thoughts on it. I've been interested in getting more involved with InPDUM but would like to hear how the meetings are organized / if they're beneficial.

Thanks.
