SILENCE IS NOT GOLDEN

SILENCE IS NOT GOLDEN

Date: Friday, November 16, 2007

Time: 11:15 am EST

Place: National Archives Building Sidewalk between

7th and 9th Streets, NW

700 Pennsylvania Avenue NW

Contact: Shane Johnson, 404.246.2677

Purpose: Counter-protest to Al Sharpton Rally

Housekeeping:

Please meet at the Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter Metro Station (Green Line) at 11:15am. I will be wearing a red hooded sweatshirt with INSPI(RED) written across the back. I will also have signs, placards, brochures and a megaphone. Contact me at sbjatlanta@yahoo.com if you get lost or need directions. I am encouraging people NOT to drive.

Staging Location:

We have a permit for the sidewalk in front of the National Archives Building with is across the street from the Justice Department. We will be as close to 9th street and Penn Ave. NW as possible. We will assemble between 11:30am and 11:45 am. I would like for us to be in position no later than 11:55am. We will disperse by 2:30 pm.

Please dress in warm clothes and layer your outfits. I expect the weather to be cool. Please also bring an umbrella or rain slicker.

Talking points:

I am not a fan of telling people what to do, but this is about DUNBAR VILLAGE and Black leaders' silence about black on black crime, especially when the victims are black women. Please keep your statements to the media in context, let’s remember why we are doing this.

Behavior:

This a peaceable assembly. Please respect yourselves and respect others.


Finally, YOU make all of this happen. Thank you for all of your hard work and your commitment.

I Just read the article in USA Today. It was a good article (except for Rev. Al's quote. I bet he was not telling the truth).

I also posted the story on my blog.

Thanks so much for what you are doing!
