Baltimore people’s assembly a resounding success

Call passed for national and local actions

The Baltimore People’s Power Assembly and the Greater Baltimore chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference held a People’s Assembly and Tribunal on June 6. More than 150 people participated.

Along with testimony from victims of police terror, the assembly resolved to call for national actions on the Aug. 9 anniversary weekend of the Ferguson rebellion along with a number of local actions and campaigns, including a “Know Your Rights/Cop Watch” campaign, local protests in defense of arrested youth, and “Black women and girls lives matter” protests on June 20 and June 21. Workers World will print an extensive article on the tribunal in next week’s issue.
