The National Action Center Newsletter contains a call to action to commemorate the historic Civil Rights March on Washington:

Keep the Dream Alive!"
A Movement for Civil and Human Rights World Wide

"Demonstrations have served as unifying forces in the movement; they have
brought blacks and whites together in very practical situations, where
philosophically they may have been arguing" - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
"Showdown for Non-violence" 1968

Last year Rev. Sharton and Dr. Martin Luther King III led the Redeem The
Dream demonstration on the anniversary of the historic March on
Washington. Tens of thousands gathered, highlighting the national plague
of racial profiling and demanding that the US federal government address
the issue. As a result of this and other efforts of community activists
across the country, racial profiling became a national issue and all the
2000 presidential candidates addressed it and pledged to make efforts
toward change. This year Rev. Sharpton and the National Action Network
have decided to again mark the anniversary of the March on
Washington with a rally-this time, at the United Nations.

Rainforest Action Network announces: "The Planet is Not for Sale!" Fighting Global Corporatization from the World Bank to Wall St.

A Rally against CITIGROUP, the world largest and most destructive financial

Washington, DC
Wed September 26, noon

The World Bank and IMF are two key institutions of corporate globalization,
using debt as a weapon to structurally adjust countries around the world to,
forcing their assimilation into an exploitive global economy. But
increasingly the corporate financial sector—Wall St. and the mega-banks—are
privatizing structural adjustment and destructive development, exemplified
by the world’s largest financial institution Citigroup. Over the past
decade funding from so-called “public” institutions like the World Bank has
stayed consistent at between $50 and $60 billion while funding from the
corporate sector has increased by 700% rising up from $30 billion in 1990 to
over $200 billion today.

Mass Demo at the Criminal Justice Center

East side of City Hall, Broad & Market Sts., Philadelphia, PA

Mumia Abu-Jamal will be in State Court in Philadelphia for a hearing to
reopen the Post Conviction Relief Appeal process. Arnold Beverly confessed
to the cop killing for which Mumia is on death row, but Federal Court Judge
Yohn recently denied the opportunity for Beverly to testify! Therefore, this
time in state court is probably Mumia's last chance in court. It is the most
urgent time ever to STAND WITH MUMIA and demand his freedom now! Mumia will
be there...will you?
