FIGHTING THE FLASH

(Note: The Following Call was issued by North Philadelphia based revolutionary leader Brother Tommy Joshua, chairman of the Coordinating Committee of August 20th March Against the Curfew)

In the Name of the One True and Living God, Whose Program is Peace

Peace,

The concept of ‘Fighting the Flash’ was created by the Working Class Youth of North Phialdelphia, by some of the actual leaders of the  so-called “Flash Mob.”

Firstly,  ‘Fighting the Flash’ means rejecting the negative label “Flash Mob” which has unfairly been placed on African-American teenagers, a label that has been created by the Media, not by them. Along with this they condemn and reject a social set-up administered by adults whom in their view, has pretty much “written them off.”

Secondly,  as young people, ‘Fighting the Flash’ means  challenging the violence, poor choices, dis-unity, and negative behavior that sometimes goes on among their peers and which doesn’t benefit  them or their community. They are talking about self-empowerment and organization AND MAKING BETTER CHOICES FOR THEMSELVES.

Lastly ‘Fighting the Flash’ mean affirming the rights of youth, of families and the community to freedom of assembly, economic development, security, education,  collective expression and self-determination by exposing the real flash mob which are the powers that be.

EVERYONE SHOULD SUPPORT THIS MOVEMENT!!!
BE PART OF THE SOLUTION

WALK WITH US AUGUST 20th
