Stay in the Streets for Justice

[Post on twitter, Facebook, Instagram, get the word out!]
From -
Flash: Savage Police Attack Sunday Night in Ferguson - ACT NOW 
In the Streets in LA - Monday, August 18th, 4 pm -  
Florence & Broadway  
and 5 pm, gather at 65th & Broadway (site of murder of Ezell Ford)

As we go live late Sunday night, August 18, the streets of Ferguson, Missouri look like Iraq or Gaza. Thick poisonous smoke fills the air, and live TV coverage shows fascist pigs blasting away at protesters with tear gas and other weapons.

And, as we go to press, network news is reporting that protesters are STILL IN THE STREETS. STILL demanding justice.

Everyone's true colors are on display right now-those who stand with those heroic, courageous freedom fighters in the streets demanding indictment and jail for the murdering police... and the VIOLENT ENFORCERS OF THIS SYSTEM who are wildly attacking the people demanding JUSTICE.
The whole world is watching!
When you read this:
  1. Call, text, tweet everyone to get to to follow what's going on and what to do about it.
  2. Make a sign - get slogans at and put on the bottom. Call a protest, demonstrate at 4 PM - pick a location, spread the word. Protest this outrageous repression! Justice for Michael Brown!
