Rally for Juanita Young and her family

Juanita Young and her family have been attacked again by the New York Police Department. Nine years ago Juanita’s son Malcolm Ferguson was killed by the cops.

Juanita Young has been an outstanding activist against police brutality and war. Last fall she was acquitted by a jury of assaulting police who invaded her home.

This latest attack on Sunday night is like the invasion of Professor Henry Louis Gates’ home in Cambridge, Massachusetts, but even more violent. Members of Juanita’s were brutalized and arrested on phony charges, including the catch-all “disorderly conduct” that Henry Louis Gates, Jr. was charged with.

Please come to the rally and show your support for Juanita Young and all other victims of police violence.

Monday, Aug. 10, 5:30 pm

In front of Juanita Young’s house at 1772 East Tremont in the Bronx (Take the 2 or 5 trains to 180th Street and walk east.)

There will be a march to the 43rd Precinct with a rally there around 7 pm. The 43rd Precinct is located at 900 Fteley Avenue in the Bronx. (Take the 6 train to Morrison-Soundview.)
