Justice US-style: George Zimmerman vindicated for vigilantism against Black youth

Zimmerman found not guilty of an unmistakable act of vigilante violence against an unarmed Black youth. US jury now confirms that vigilante assaults on Black youth are a legitimate auxiliary force to police & governmental violence against Black youth.

Outrage needs to be expressed in the strongest forms of collective protest & political organization against the US war on Black youth. The US Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s was a beacon, inspiring so many downtrodden people throughout the world from Northern Ireland to India to Africa to Latin America. Now is the time to reciprocate in solidarity & like measure.

Time to throw down the gauntlet of solidarity, to draw an impenetrable line of solidarity in defense of Black youth. Whether you live in the US or elsewhere, whether you can call in sick or not, you can join this event as an act of solidarity with Black youth & join the phalanxes of brothers & sisters around the world who are committed to the mantra, "an injury to one is an injury to all!"
