Someone show the people that the impossible is possible!

At 11:08 p.m. on September 21, 2011, the U.S. justice system executed Troy Anthony Davis whom a half million people, including Arch-bishop Tutu, Former President Jimmy Carter, Former FBI Director William Sessions believed was innocent of the murder of police officer Mark Mac Phial.   Thousands around the world signed petitions and protested on behalf of Davis. His family dedicated the last 22 years to appealing to local and federal authorities, to the Supreme Court, too the White House, to anyone who would listen.

But did anyone listen?

That is it, isn't it? This U.S. government no longer listens to its citizens, to the people of the world. The plutocrats, the heads of corporations, the 1 percent wealthy and "powerful" merchants of death have lifted the veil. No more illusions, our dear people!

 

And now we know what Douglass, Wells, Goodman, Debs, Fanon, Newton, Malcolm, and King knew.  

Justice!

Ask the thousands of dead children and adults buried in Iraq, in Afghanistan, in Pakistan. Ask the survivors of U.S. aggression living in Korea and Vietnam. Ask them in Chile and Argentina, in Guatemala about the CIA-backed personnel that assisted and trained native police and soldiers to imprison, torture, and kill innocent men, women, and children.  

 

Justice!

Ask the thousands, many of whom gave their lives for decent working environments and wages, for civil and human rights, for the right of mother Earth.
