Justice Denied: People’s Power, The Struggle Continues
March 24th and 25th, 2017
The 14th Annual Symposium will address inequities faced while seeking redress for injustices through government legal systems. Using the recently released 2016 Commission of Inquiry (COI) Report into the 1980 assassination of Dr. Walter Rodney, the discussions will focus on its revelations of state terrorism and conspiracy, use of a military assassin, murder and government cover-up; and the necessary next steps to achieve justice.
Topics will also include contemporary injustices related to police brutality and shootings, political incarcerations, the school-to-prison pipeline, the prison-industrial complex and for-profit judicial systems, and the continuing fight for human rights and equal justice. Discussions will also focus on how Rodney’s writings speak directly to these issues as we seek to effect change.
