Do you want to help protect 1st Amendment rights at protests and demonstrations? Interested in providing legal support for any number of social justice causes across Michigan from eviction defense to water rights and the fight against police brutality? Learn more about becoming a Legal Observer! The Detroit and Michigan Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild in conjunction with the Detroit Black Panther Historical Project is currently building capacity to provide legal support for activists on the frontlines of these issues and more. The presence of Legal Observers may act as a deterrent against unjust police practices. Our role is to document police interference with first amendment rights activity at political actions. We are connected to a network of civil rights attorneys locally and nationally who depend on these notes in court when activists are arrested. Please register on Eventbrite so that we can get an accurate headcount. Light refreshments will be provided. The training is free to the public. Donations are appreciated. For more information about the National Lawyers Guild’s Legal Observer program, visit: http://www.nlg.org/legal-observer®-program What is a "Legal Observer"? Legal observers are individuals, usually representatives of civilian human rights agencies, who attend public demonstrations, protests and other activities where there is a potential for conflict between the public or activists and the police, security guards, or other law enforcement personnel. The purpose of legal observers is to monitor, record, and report on any unlawful or improper behaviour. Legal or human rights observers act as an independent third party within a conflictual civil protest context, observing police behaviour in order to keep police accountable for their actions. Legal observers can write incident reports describing police violence and misbehaviour and compile reports after the event. https://www.facebook.com/events/2119964341425645/

For Immediate Release Media Advisory Dear Friends and Social Justice Advocates, This year's 16th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Rally & March comes at a time of rising hatred, bigotry and military conflict both inside the United States and around the world. On Monday, January 21, 2019, the Detroit MLK Day Program/Rally and March will commemorate the 90th birthday of Dr. King. This year's program will feature keynote speaker Ms. Gail Walker, the Executive Director of the Inter-religious Foundation for Community Organization (IFCO) based in New York City. IFCO has been in the leadership of various community and international campaigns since its founding in 1967. In late April 1969, IFCO sponsored the National Black Economic Development Conference (NBEDC) at Wayne State University (WSU) which put forward the first modern-day call for reparations to be paid to African Americans for the stolen labor during slavery and the national oppression in which they have lived under since the conclusion of the Civil War (1861-1865). In addition, 2019 represents the 50th anniversary of the further emergence of Black workers in the leadership of the Civil Rights and other Emancipation struggles. 1969 witnessed the formation of the League of Revolutionary Black Workers (LRBW) in Detroit and the Charleston, South Carolina hospital employees strike which was led by African American women with the intervention of Mrs. Coretta Scott King, the heir to the legacy of Dr. King after his assassination on April 4, 1968. These events prefigured the ongoing movement on behalf of low-wage workers and the imperatives of eliminating poverty in this country. The recent efforts by D15, Unite Here and other labor organizations demanding justice for marginalized workers is a major advancement in the movement for full equality and self-determination. In addition to its work on domestic issues, IFCO has coordinated the education of over 150 students who studied medicine for free at the Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM) in the Republic of Cuba. Numerous youth from Detroit along with other cities have taken advantage of this program. The recruitment of these young people was initiated by Rev. Dr. Lucius Walker, the founder of IFCO, as well as former City Council member Rev. Dr. Jo Ann Watson. You are cordially invited to attend this 16th Annual Detroit MLK Day event at our new location of the St. Mathew’s-St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church located at 8850 Woodward Avenue between King and Holbrook in the city’s North End neighborhood. This venue which is a historic institution in Detroit having played an integral part in the 19th century Underground Railroad and the Northern High School Student Strike of April 1966, among other important events, will place us in the heart of the city in a community where gentrification, water shutoffs and tax foreclosures continue to take a serious toll. The program begins at 12 Noon in the sanctuary and will include music and brief messages from cultural workers and activists from throughout the region. At about 1:30 p.m., the Detroit MLK Day March for Jobs, Peace and Justice will begin. At 3:00 p.m., a special cultural program of poetry and music will take place at the church. A healthy community meal will be served. The Detroit MLK Day Committee is comprised of a small, dedicated group of volunteers. Due to the significance of the January 21, 2019, Detroit MLK Day Program & March, we are seeking contributions now to assure a successful event. Please send your contribution to: Detroit MLK Day Committee, 5920 Second Ave., Detroit, MI 48202. Please make checks payable to: "Detroit MLK Day". You may donate online https://mlkdetroit.org/donate/. Thank you for your kind support! Sincerely in Peace and Solidarity, The Detroit MLK Day Committee https://www.facebook.com/events/259472358071504/

GM's announced plant closings are illegal and must be stopped! 1. GM is violating the Moratorium on Plant Closings in the UAW-GM Contract. 2. GM is violating the terms of the $8.9 billion taxpayer bankruptcy bailout. It was on condition it build fuel efficient and electric cars. GM is shutting down the plants which build and supply these vehicles to shift production to gas guzzing high profit SUV;s and trucks. 3. GM is violating the terms of the $3.4 billion in MEGA tax credits it received from the State of Michigan. GM promised to retain Michigan jobs and not relocate the plants. Only a mass struggle of the workers, the unions and broad community can force profit-hungry GM to stop violating the law and the contract and keep the plants open. Let's strategize together to build the movement. Meeting initiated by Moratorium NOW! Coaliton. Call 313-680-5508.
