The Fifth Of May

And today, well actually yesterday according to the clock, was cinco de mayo, the fifth of may. Isn’t that some sort of holiday. And there is a cyclone in the news, many people have lost their lives to a natural disaster to planet mother earth. And I received yet another one of those Todd Eaton emails today that seem to be all protest all the time for every single cause that one can think of to save the world. And I deleted it somehow, as I thought it interesting enough to repost again. And it was about a protest tomorrow, or Friday for the latest person to lose their life to the police and gun violence. And this leads me to asking myself that question, for what reason are there so many police in New York City, its NYC MTA subway system and the world, and are there any states without police. And actually for what reason are there guns in the world. Guns are the worst invention of an industry ever. Is it possible to have a world without guns and to banish guns from every human being on the face of planet earth and to banish guns from every form of advertising and marketing and media outlet on planet earth. Does not media and advertising influence and program society. And is it possible to rewrite that fourth amendment to say the right to bear sticks and stones, or nothing, instead of the right to bear arms, as if property is worth more than human life. And it is a story that has been told yesterday and will be told tomorrow with no end in sight, that another person loses their life to gun violence for no reason at all except for the fact that guns have been invented. It is a cycle that feeds on itself. Where is the world headed. Is another world possible. No one is free when others are oppressed. And that could be a whole another blog posting. And now I have found myself looking all over the internet for that Todd Eaton email that seems as if it is lost in internetland and seemingly does not want to be found again without an email subscription. And although I can not find it again, I came across A NY Protest Calendar website that had a similar listing posted for this event:

Wednesday May 7: Sean Bell CD volunteer or risk arrest

“people who want to volunteer and be arrested send an email or call 212-690-3070.”

Latest below had been released to, which story claimed the Wednesday 3:00 pm meeting points were for folks actually seeking to risk arrest, not only for folks offering support. This below from Rayblin instead says you must RSVP by phone or e-mail in advance to learn CD locations.

Support Sean Bell and Family – Calling All Civil Disobedients


Sean Bell’s Family seeks your support. They have solicited the support of Reverend Daughtrey, of the House of the Lord Church, the National Action Network, and various City Council Members, including Charles Barron, to work with the community to develop a people’s strategy for justice.

They have initiated organizing efforts at 1199’s Martin Luther King Auditorium, where community leaders and concerned people met to discuss possible actions and collective demands. The Civil Disobedience Committee, where people volunteer to gather in various locations throughout the city, hold hands for a city wide Pray-in, and sit-down until arrested.

Below is a quote from Al Sharpton that explains best the goals of the Civil Disobedience and all other related actions:

The goal of the protests is to tie up traffic and force police to make arrests. Sharpton says the protests will continue on a weekly basis, leading up to what he hopes will be a citywide shutdown. “If you’re not going to lock up the guilty in this town, then I guess you’re going to have to lock up the innocent. Since you won’t lock up the cops, then lock up those that are fighting for justice,” said Sharpton.

“On Wednesday, please come out and we’re going to do this peacefully, like we always have,” said Paultre-Bell, Sean Bell’s Widow.

I am asking for people who want to volunteer and be arrested to send an email to: the.frontlines at Please bear in mind that the goal is to be arrested, not confront the police. This is a city wide pray in. Time and place of actual meeting place will be available once having being identified as a Civil Disobedient.

Each team of CD volunteers will have one lawyer who will work to ensure that every single member is released as soon as possible, once arrested. Each team will be headed by two captains who will work to coordinate contact information, do crowd control, and all other issues related to the Civil Disobedience action. Each team will have one staff person from National Action Network helping to coordinate and support.

For those who wish to support and not be arrested, the coalition is asking for support by appearing at any of the following sites by 3:00 pm. The locations for Wednesday’s gatherings are as follows:

1. Third Avenue at 125th Street
2. Park Avenue at 34th Street
3. Third Avenue at 60th Street
4. Varick and Houston Streets
5. One Police Plaza
6. 415 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn.

“There will be small groups in each place and they will meet there at the same time and at the same time we are going to have a city-wide pray-in,” said Sharpton. “Where we going those that know won’t say and those that say don’t know.”

Otherwise come and support at any of the following six sites and be there by 3 pm

And what does this have to do with a No Police State?
