THE FREEDOM SIDE: THE PEOPLE’S TRIBUNAL AND CONGRESS RISING AGAINST WHITE SUPREMACIST TERROR TOWARD A JUST WORLD
Time & Location
Oct 17, 2020, 11:00 AM – Oct 18, 2020, 4:00 PM
About the Event
n the tradition of international tribunals against state terror , we the people will hold corrupt government officials, greedy corporations, and actors of white supremacist and patriarchal violence accountable for the terror our communities face. The Tribunal will lay out the crimes of U.S. policy and the policies and practices of dominant institutions that perpetuate white supremacy, state terror, racial capitalism, empire and hetero-patriarchy. The biggest uprising in U.S. history has focused on police violence and racism but the demands of the movement reflect a bigger agenda and a deeper analysis. This tribunal will document in human terms, the pain and suffering caused by current policies and practices.
Joined by Freedom Side Jurors Angela Y Davis, Alfred Woodfox, Raquel Willis,Tom Goldtooth, Arundhati Roy, and others, we will be receiving testimonies from communities across the country and making meaning of the moment.
October 18th will be The People’s Congress
We are a resilient community. Despite the conditions we face, we continue to envision a just world where we live with dignity and integrity. As communities seeking justice we invite you to the people’s congress where we will be building our collective vision that goes beyond the elections and building our skills to take sustained action towards liberation.
