This Friday, April 9, several brass bands, including the Stooges Brass Band, will be leading a secondline from Lafayette Square to the Riverside Hilton Hotel, site of the RNC convention. The secondline begins at 6:30PM sharp.
The protest is organized by a coalition of activists who list the following points of unity:- The SRLC is not welcome in NOLA without a fuss.
- Healthcare is a basic human right.
- Oppose police oppression, the prison-industrial complex, and the dominant culture of militarism.
- Recognize the need for active resistance to confront all forms of oppression, respecting a diversity of tactics.
- A commitment to mutual-aid and voluntary association as organizing principles.
- Recognize the need to settle organizational differences internally.
We hope the people of New Orleans will show this hate-filled gathering that they are not welcome here.
