WHY?: What I appreciate about this is the mobility of it all, the grassroots organizing that the POCC continues to exhibit time and time again. Chairman Fred Hampton, Jr along with Minister of Information J.R. Valrey and the POCC are presenting this forum as a means of engaging important issues relating to political prisoners and police terrorism. Much respect to the POCC... "Free 'em All".
The POCC Presents, the "You Can Kill a Revolutionary... But You Can't Kill the Revolution!" Tour: The Prisoners of Conscience Committee is embarking on a 6 month tour and education campaign around the planet called, "You Can Kill a Revolutionary But You Can't Kill the Revolution". The purpose is to educate and re-inform people about the 40th anniversary of one of Black and colonized people's "September 11th's", the "Massacre on Monroe" where the U.S. government by way of the Chicago police department assassinated 21 year old Chairman Fred Hampton and Defense Captain Mark Clark of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party, at approximately 4:35 in the morning on December 4th, 1969 on the West Side of Chicago.
The tour consists of a showing of the documentary film, "The Assassination of Chairman Fred", which documents the life of one of the Black Panther's most talented and charismatic leaders as well as one of the world's most vibrant chapters, and other relevant movies. The movies will be followed by a Q &A with the Prisoners of Conscience Committee's Chairman Fred Hampton Jr, the son of the Black Panther Chairman Fred Hampton, about acts of government terrorism and rampant police murders in the community like the situations with Oscar Grant III, Lovelle Mixon, Adolph Grimes, Kathryn Johnston, Deondre Brunston, Donte Story, Annette Garcia, Daryl Hamiliton, Sean Bell, and so many more.
Throughout this California leg of the tour, the Prisoners of Conscience Committee will be joined on various dates by the family of Oscar Grant and other victims of police terrorism, representatives from resistance movements nationally and internationally, different kinds of artists and more.
At certain locations, the POCC's Chairman Fred will be politically educating through doing spoken word from his new debut cd, "The Ghetto Manifesto", which is available in a limited supply. So be on the lookout.
