The Uhuru Movement is sponsoring a
Tribunal to charge the City of Philadelphia for its crimes against the African community.
Mayor John Street, Police Commissioner Sylvester Johnson and other officials will be subpoenaed to appear before the African community court to hear the charges against them.
It's an African People's Court that includes expert and community testimony regarding the unacceptable rise in police murder of young African men - a record 20 Africans were killed in 2006 and already 5 more in 2007 so far; the hostile and inadequate anti-black school system; the forcible removal of African families and communities through gentrification; the history of city-sponsored terror against the African community including the bombing of the MOVE organization in 1985, and the framing of African Political Prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact 267-254-5901 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
