You are invited to a PSL Public Meeting:
*Racist Killer Cops: Get Off Our Streets!*

*Monday, August 24th - 6:00 PM
Dudley Square Public Library
65 Warren St., Roxbury
*
*End Police Brutality Now!*

The arrest of Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates by Cambridge Police
quickly turned racial profiling into a national issue overnight. While the
media focused its attention on the “beer summit”, everyday in Black and
Latino communities across the country, the police operate as an occupying
force – stopping, harassing and brutalizing anyone they wish. Sean Bell,
Oscar Grant, Annette Garcia and Kenny Lazo are just a few of the countless
victims of the racist killer cops who roam our streets with impunity.

*Hear a presentation on the growing epidemic of racial profiling and police
brutality and discuss the role of the cops in your community.*

*The Police & The State: How Can We Win?*

While social services like health and education are slashed year after year,
funding for the police, anti-immigrant forces, and the prison system
continually increase. In the last few years, stop-and-frisks, police
checkpoints, anti-gang injunctions, and various so-called “neighborhood
safety” programs and initiatives have dramatically increased all across the
country.

*Come hear a revolutionary Marxist perspective on the relationship between
the capitalist state and its forces of repression, and how we can build a
people's movement to defeat them both.*

*Also: No Fare Hikes or Cuts On The T!

*Sign the petition and more at:

Hear an update on the PSL's “Fight Back!” campaign and get involved! While
the Governor and the MBTA have canceled all public meetings on their
proposal, they have NOT taken it off the table.

*The PSL and its partners are organizing a “People's Hearing” and demanding
the attendance of public officials – our voices must be heard!*

Note: Date and Location of “People's Hearing” is TBA*
