Milwaukee, April 30: Marching For Dontre Hamilton!

Attention! Attention! Attention! New post with new instructions for those who can march down to Red Arrow with us tomorrow:

MPD doesn’t want us to march! They don’t want us to to take to the streets! But we haven’t gotten this far by remaining silent. We have only gotten to this point because we’ve been willing to take it to our streets and make some noise. With that being said, tomorrow we will be leading a march down to Red Arrow Park to convene for the one year anniversar…y. We would love for you to join us (Free/No Time Restriction Parking is available at the location, and transportation will be provided back to location after the event is concluded):

March Logistics:
Leaving from Center Public Library (2727 W. Fond Du Lac Ave.) @ 3:30pm (Meet at 3pm – Park on 28th street behind the Library) – March straight down Fond Du Lac.

This march will be led by the Hamilton Family.

If you can, please join us, and help us make some noise! If not we still look forward to seeing you at Red Arrow Park (1000 N. Water St. at 5:30)

Inbox us if you have any questions…. or check out the event here

**We condensed the march to one location to make sure that everyone is safe, and that we have numbers of folks walking together to show MPD and the city of Milwaukee that we won’t be intimidated by their threats. So let’s show up in full force and and let them know that “we shall not be moved.”**

State of Emergency for the Ruling Class While African American Youth Draw the Line in Baltimore City

ANALYSIS BY Abayomi Azikiwe: http://tinyurl.com/ow2vfnf

http://panafricannews.blogspot.com/

“Baltimore youth raised the stakes in the struggle against police brutality on April 27 when they set off the largest urban rebellion in the recent period. Since Aug. 9, 2014, with the police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, the mood of militancy and mass action has accelerated throughout the United States.In response to the demonstrations and rebellion, Maryland Republican Gov. Larry Hogan has declared a “state of emergency” announcing the deployment of National Guard troops ostensibly to restore order. A curfew between 10:00pm and 5:00am was slated to go into effect on the evening of April 28…

All youth and adults seeking meaningful employment, economic opportunities and quality education must be provided with these resources. National Guard troops and police should be withdrawn from the African American communities. The people must be empowered to both define and pursue their fundamental human, political and economic rights to peace, living wages, quality housing and schools leading to total community control and self-determination.”

Support Milwaukee students Arrested For Protesting Discrimination

On the afternoon of Monday, April 27, students of Marquette University in Milwaukee held a Solidarity march to draw attention to the list of demands that they had presented to Dr. Lovell in the Fall, which have yet to be fulfilled.

The list of demands can be reviewed here:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1PFDGSd8BpCEYiyPS3bqviy94uufyIV-61uAMSePxD7c/edit?usp=sharingWe want to address issues of discrimination, police brutality, divestment, and many other initiatives taking place in and around Milwaukee. We hope that our presence will reveal the urgency of our demands and show Marquette that these issues effect Students of Color and the Milwaukee community.

The oppression of one is the oppression of us all and until we come together nothing will change and we will continue to be oppressed.

Please support our fellow students who were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct by donating what you can so that we may pay their fines and continue to work towards change on campus, and in Milwaukee. Any amount will be a great help.
If you have any questions in regards to the Solidarity March please email us at coalitionsocmu@gmail.com
