Be There: February 18th at The Riverside Church

A Talk by Carl Dix

Mass Incarceration + Silence = Genocide! 

Mass Incarceration — Its Source, The Need to Resist Where Things Are Heading and The Revolution We Need!
    October 21, 2011 at the NYPD 28th Precinct.
  • 2.4 million people, most of them Black and Latino, in prison!
  • Racial profiling a pipeline to prison for generations of our youth!
  • Former prisoners discriminated against on virtually every front!
Carl Dix says, “All this comes down to a slow genocide which could easily accelerate into fast genocide.”
On February 18, Dix will break all this down and speak to where things are headed if action is not taken. And he will talk about “what kind of revolution is needed to eliminate mass incarceration and all the brutality and misery this capitalist system enforces on humanity once and for all.”  See video here.
