Occupy Site Organizing Trayvon Martin Post-Verdict 'Actions'
InterOccupy.Net has set itself up as a hub for demonstrations to react to the verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman. The prosecution and defense have both rested, and the case is expected to go to the jury shortly.
The Stop Mass Incarceration Network has set up a Facebook Page for people to list any planned actions responding to the imminent verdict in the George Zimmerman Murder Trial.
Below are some planned actions. If you don’t see yours here please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org AND contact the Stop Mass Incarceration Network through any of the following avenues:
Go to our website to find materials to use in spreading the message: “We Are All Trayvon; The Whole Damned System Is Guilty!” Send your plans to SMIN at email@example.com. Take pictures of what you do and send the pictures and reports to SMIN as well.
This is the place to post your plans for action when the jury goes to the Jury. Actions are being planned around the country from Sanford to Harlem! Whether it is you and a few friends on at a busy intersection or thousands in the streets–DO SOMETHING and plan it NOW!
Read the call from the Stop Mass Incarceration Network:
Nationwide and worldwide attention is riveted on the trial of George Zimmerman, the vigilante, wannabe cop who murdered Trayvon Martin. As a recent article in Revolution Newspaper put it:“Right now, American society—with the whole world increasingly taking notice—is polarizing. Two sides are lining up—one upholding the right of the Trayvon Martins of this world to live and flourish and, if they are attacked, to have justice… and the other upholding the supposed rights of people like George Zimmerman to kill people like Trayvon with impunity.”
If you are part of that side which upholds the right of the Trayvons of this world to live and have justice, YOU MUST ACT NOW. If Zimmerman walks free again, it will be like a declaration of Open Season on Black youth! This is unacceptable and must not be allowed to go down without determined mass resistance.
The Stop Mass Incarceration Network (SMIN) calls on everybody who wants to see “Justice 4 Trayvon” to take that desire to the streets. MAKE PLANS FOR A VIGIL WHEN THE CASE GOES TO THE JURY AND TO TAKE TO THE STREETS ON THE DAY OF OR THE DAY AFTER THE VERDICT COMES DOWN, WHICHEVER WAY IT GOES!

How likely to remain peaceful are people who believe that "the whole damned system is guilty," if their current focus of hate, George Zimmerman, is acquitted?
