Press Conference & Protest

The International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement is calling a crucial press conference and demonstration at the World Series Sunday, October 26th to protest the police attacks on the African community, and let the world know that there is open season in Philadelphia, where the police have been given license to kill young African men!
• Gather at the Uhuru Solidarity Center at 5:00pm
3733 Lancaster Ave, W. Phila

The Philadelphia police killed 22 people in 2006; 15 people in 2007 and have already killed 9 people this year, most recently Michael "Butchie" Johnson on Tuesday Oct 21st in West Philadelphia. On September 23rd, Philadelphia police murdered Denill Giddings, whose Grand-mother demands justice, saying, "My grandson wasn't a 'menace to society,' he was a good man. He was a son, a father, and he didn't deserve to be shot down by the cops!"

Protest organizer Diop Olugbala, InPDUM International Organizer, who led the Uhuru Movement's internationally televised protest at Obama's rally demanding 'What about the black community, Obama?' says, "African people are tired of seeing their family members murdered by the police, and are getting organized to resist these conditions, and expose the true relationship between the police and the black community."

The protest at the World Series is in unison with protests held at Tampa Bay World Series games on October 22nd and 23rd, which drew attention to the killing of four young African men by the St. Petersburg police.

The International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement in Philadelphia is demanding justice and reparations to the families and communities of victims of police murder, and is building a Reparations Tribunal in Philadelphia for December 2008.

Giddings

You have got to be kidding regarding Giddings who EXECUTED a police Officer moments before he exchanged shots with other Officers. Giddings was a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and wanted for being in possession of a stolen car the previous days from which he ran when stopped by the Police. Your group is a joke. Reparations! Were YOU a slave? were your PARENTS slaves? was your grandparents or aunts or uncles slaves? Think not
