Pour vous rafraîchir les esprits.
Le cas est celui de Sean Bell, un jeune homme qui a reçu cinquante balles de la police de New York.
Le jeune homme sortait d'une fête pour marquer la fin de son célibat.
Il devait se marier dans les jours suivants.
Les policiers auteurs des coups de feu viennent d'être acquittés.
Le juge a considéré que le comportement des jeunes justifiait les 50 projectiles envoyé dans le corps de Sean Bell.
Le message qui suit est un appel à un boycot entre le 19 et le 23 mai. qui consisterait à ne faire aucun achat pendant ces journées.
Hi Everyone, I'm passing this on....we can make a difference! "P"
Hope that this e-mail reaches you in good health and spirits. There are approximately 23 days left to the NATIONAL BOYCOTT (May19-23). As many of you may know, the NYPD detectives in the Sean Bell murder trial were acquitted on all charges. The judge in the case had made his decision based on the fact that the demeanor and background of Mr. Bell and his friends had warranted the detectives to shoot over 50 times. This judicial decision cannot go unanswered. Go back to the 80's with the death of Micheal Stewart and Eleanor bumpers to name a few. Go back even further to a time when it was legal to lynch African Americans. For too long we have sat idle by while we let the "establishment" shoot our leaders (Malcolm/Martin/Medgar) and our young black/hispanic men (Stewart/Baez/Bell) and have done NOTHING about it.
Now is the time to move to action. We must make this stand because if we do not, they will continue to just kill our leaders and young men when it suits them knowing they will not be held to the same judicial consequences as the average citizens. We can no longer turn a blind eye, because it may happen to us. The only thing that the establishment understands is the almighty dollar.
So remember, do all necessary shopping prior to the MAY 19th (May17 & 18). Buy no gas; fill up before. Do grocery shopping before. Carpool to work, if possible ride a bike or walk to work. Bring bagged lunch to work or leftovers. Spend not one penny that week. Make a donation of at least $5.00 to a Black/Hispanic organization. God Bless. PLEASE PASS THIS ON.
