POCC CALLING FOR CONTINGENT TO U.N. IN LA

THE UNITED NATIONS IS COMING TO LOS ANGELES TO INVESTIGATE RACISM IN THE U.S.. LA IS ONE OF 8 CITIES WHICH INCLUDE NEW ORLEANS, NEW YORK, CHICAGO, AND SAN JUAN AMONG OTHER PLACES, WHERE THE UN IS CONDUCTING ITS INVESTIGATION. WE ARE ASKING FOR PEOPLE TO JOIN UP WITH THE POCC IN ADDRESSING THE RACISM THAT EXIST TODAY, AND THAT OUR PEOPLE HAVE SUFFERED FOR OVER 400 YEARS. WE ARE AWARE THAT THE UN IN MOST CASES ARE SUBORDINATE TO US INTEREST IN MOST CASES LIKE WHAT HAPPENED IN THE CONGO WITH PATRICE LAMUMBA, LIKE WHAT HAPPENED IN HAITI WITH THE UN SHOOTING INNOCENT PEOPLE AFTER THE OVERTHROW OF PRES. ARISTIDE, AS WELL AS LIKE WHAT IS HAPPENING IN IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN, AND CUBA RIGHT NOW. AT THE SAME TIME, THIS IS OUR CHANCE TO DOCUMENT GOVERNMENT TERRORISM IN AN INTERNATIONAL FORUM, AND WE NEED TO LET THE WORLD KNOW WHAT HAPPENS ON THESE SHORES WITH OUR PEOPLE.



THE UN WILL BE IN LA ON MAY 27TH,28TH, AND 29TH.



ON THE 27TH - 2:30PM THEY WILL BE AT LA COMMUNITY ACTION NETWORK WITH UCLA PROFESSOR GARY BLASI, THEN THEY WILL GO TO THE MENS CENTRAL JAIL.
