Stop the Wars and Build the Resistance10.30.11



Title:   Stop the Wars and Build the Resistance
Date:   Saturday, November 5
Time:   12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Location:   Broad Street & Susquehanna Avenue
Phone:   215-243-7103

Join the Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations,, for a national rally and march.
Oppose imperialist wars and support the righteous resistance of the people in struggles to regain their resources, sovereignty, dignity and happiness. Stop the wars against African people in Africa, inside the U. S. and Europe and around the world. Stop the wars against Native people, Mexicans and so-called illegals. Stop the domestic wars against Muslims and Arab people.
We are marching to change the contours of the political terrain in Philadelphia by forcing a public anti-imperialist discussion that will expose neocolonial, indirect imperialist rule used against the people of Philadelphia , the U.S. and the world. We are going beyond the traditional anti-war movement. We are not only opposing the popularly recognized wars abroad. We are not simply calling for peace. We are not pacifists; we are anti-imperialists who recognize that the way to stop the wars is to build resistance to imperialism itself.

Endorsed by the Green Party of Philadelphia , For more information, please contact 202-681-7040 or email
This event is free and open to the public.

Philly Greens Call Curfew, “new Jim Crow”10.30.11


In response to Philadelphia City Council’s hearings into a new curfew, the Green Party of Philadelphia City Committee took a public stand on October 22, against the Democratic/Republican establishment. City Council’s hearings into the criminalization of youth, demonstrated that Philadelphia is against such a curfew. This did not stop City Council from passing the curfew law in a bi-partisan fashion on October 27. Since the law was proposed by Mayor Michael Nutter, most observers expect him to sign it.
