Let everyone know about April 19th



  
A19 grey

This country imprisons more people than any other country on the planet. On Thursday, April 19th, everyone who is concerned about injustice must join in saying─ NO TO MASS INCARCERATION ─in a loud voice. There must be rallies and demonstrations in cities across the country. College and high school students must hold teach in's and other actions on their campuses. There need be cultural events held on that

day. The architects and enforcers of mass incarceration must be challenged over the inhumanity of the policies they are inflicting on society.  

 

A lot of important work has been done on this front. Michelle Alexander and others have done a lot of exposure of the horrors of mass incarceration. Prisoners, activists and others concerned about injustice, including a number of prominent have been involved in building resistance to this problem. It is crucial that this resistance be taken to

higher level─NOW.

  

We must do this because:

  • 2.4 million people, 60% of them Black or Latino, are held in prisons across the US.
  • Racial profiling practiced by police and courts serves as a pipeline to these horrific numbers.
  • People in prison are subjected to torture-like conditions.
  • The formerly incarcerated face discrimination, even after they've served their sentences. 

  

We must do this now because in this very political time─with the presidential elections heading into full swing─the horror of racially targeted mass incarceration is being hardly mentioned. And when it does come up, it is raised only to call for even harsher measures. Only our independent mass action can puncture this atmosphere─putting this injustice forcefully before society and challenging everyone who is concerned about justice to take a stand.

may dat 2012

To Everyone who has been involved in the BA Everywhere campaign and all those who would like to get involved:

     Sunday April 15th 4pm-7pm  
at Revolution Books 
Important mini-conference (a 3 hour with pizza) to pull together anyone and everyone who has been involved in the BA Everywhere campaign, has contributed in any way big or small, and new people who want to be part of this or learn more what this is about.  Bring your favoriteBAsics quote to share. Bring friends and family members who dream of a better world.

We will be making plans to build for a truly electrifying May Day wave of taking BA Everywhere, getting into the importance of this campaign and the work of Bob Avakian. (Read the complete call for Mayday 2012  here) .

The major national  fundraising goal through May first is $15,000 for the BAsics Bus Tour, which will be rolling into the thick of the struggle in a particular hot spot in this country. We need to be raising thousands of dollars beginning now to achieve this goal through meeting and drawing in many more people who can contribute in different ways.

To learn about the pilot project of the Bus Tour in California in February:

The nationwide plans include:

*Tuesday, April 24-Special issue of Revolution featuring quotes from BA on internationalism and revolution.

* Saturday, April 28-Reach 1000's of people who have not yet heard of BA. Get BAsics into their hands. Make a big splash!

* Sunday, April 29-Fundraising dinners to celebrate May Day and a different and far better future. Food, music, spoken word. Bring your ideas and imagination.

* Monday, April 30-Gather people and prepare for an internationalist contingent for May First.
