HANDS OFF THE CITY HALL 2!
Uhuru Movement leaders were attacked and arrested by the City for peacefully protesting Nutter’s budget and Billion Dollar War on the black community!
• Diop Olugbala, leader of the local branch of the Uhuru Movement,was put in a chokehold by police for peacefully speaking out at a City Council session on the budget on March 19th, 2009.
• Diop and Shabaka Mnombatha were arrested and face trial for protesting Mayor Nutter's budget that raises the sales tax while spending over $1 billion a year on police & prisons -- even as poverty and police violence & brutality escalate in the African community.
• On April 28th the Uhuru Movement won a victory when Judge Deni dropped the felony charges as the cops were exposed in the lies used by the State to cover up the attack on the City Hall 2.
• In a clear political attack on the Uhuru Movement and the right of African people to speak out in their interest,the State is attempting to reverse the April 28th ruling and reimpose the felony charges on Diop!
