Denounce the Murder of Troy Davis!

We received the below from the supporters of Revolution Uptown/Harlem.

Denounce the Murder of Troy Davis!
138th and Amsterdam Avenue    noon until 2:00 ---   today
Harlem State Building- 125th and Adam Clayton Powell 5:00  --- today
Union Square Park     5:00   --- today

Hello Folks,
Last night this system murdered Troy Anthony Davis. As many thousands of people around the country and the world, including here in Harlem, demanded the execution be stopped, the authorities pressed relentlessly toward Troy's death. A hateful, murderous, yes, fascistic message has just been seen. What is our response?

Uptown readers if Revolution newspaper ( are calling for folks to gather on the corner of 138th and Amsterdam Avenue today from noon until 2pm (and at the Harlem State Building at 5:00) in a powerful denunciation of the execution of Troy Davis and the system that killed him. What happened last night needs to be talked about in every class today, at the bus stop and on the train, at work, and in your circle of friends and family. In a thousand ways, those who are outraged about this legal lynching must spread that outrage, spread the resistance. We need a massive outpourings of resistance! We often look at history and think we would have acted morally, courageously, in the face of slavery, or Jim Crow/KKK terror. This is the New Jim Crow terror- this is a moment that tests our morality and courage.

"There is a place where epistemology and morality meet. There is a place where you have to stand and say: It is not acceptable to refuse to look at something—or to refuse to believe something—because it makes you uncomfortable. And: It is not acceptable to believe something just because it makes you feel comfortable."
     Bob Avakian  BAsics 5:11

This is such a place. This is such a time! 

The days when this system can just keep on doing what it does to people, here and all over the world…when people are not inspired and organized to stand up against these outrages and to build up the strength to put an end to this madness…those days must be GONE. And they CAN be.
