Rallies planned on anniversary of MLK's killing in Memphis

Rallies planned on anniversary of MLK's killing in Memphis

After that speech, Jones knew King's days were numbered. This is part of what he said. "I could not be silent in the face of such cruel manipulation of the poor". I speak for those whose land is being laid waste, whose homes are being destroyed, whose culture is being subverted.

This latter statement left King no alternative than to oppose the war in Vietnam. I speak as a citizen of the world, for the world as it stands aghast at the path we have taken.

That this exhausted assertion that white Americans, who have not felt the wrath of racial discrimination, systematic oppression and in these very emotionally surreal cases the loss of a loved one at the hands of those oppressors know better, has to end. "Martin Luther King has been shot, '" he recalls of the breaking news bulletin. 'Aren't you hurting the cause of your people?' they ask. Surely Dr. King smiles down upon them.

Dr. King responded to their call because he preached in his last speech that we need to develop a "dangerous unselfishness". The sermon Reverend Barber delivered was titled "When Silence is Not an Option".

That's why one of the greatest gifts of courage that Young, now 85, can share with people who are struggling with limited incomes is his mistake; to show that people of his stature are just as vulnerable to making money and credit missteps as they are. "This is not your war". He said he had wanted to visit King's birthplace for as long as he can remember.

REV. WILLIAM BARBER: Yeah, he gave this, the speech-I would say a prophetic sermon-at Riverside and was killed exactly one year later. "Evers, X, King might still be alive if you had". "You know what it is". If you listen to his voice and his words, he was very clear.

"He could have written this speech yesterday". Those in close proximity to the incidents reacted emotionally and utilized their right to protest in civil disobedience and were met with a militarized police response to the protests with set armored vehicles, tear gas and rubber bullets. Unions did the same thing-not all, but some. "And then we look at militarism", said Barber. And the question, Amy and Juan, for the country today is: Where are we on these same issues?

For the first time in the Riverside speech, King connected a domestic civil rights movement with United States foreign policy.

He also said: "We must move past indecision to action". "We're talking about [adding] 54 billion dollars to an already bloated military budget".

As leaders in the black community, they were very vocal about the changes needed for us to attain equal rights as USA citizens. The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light.' Here is Césaire's Discourse on Colonialism (1950) and Fanon's Wretched of the Earth (1961), deeply felt prose on behalf of the world's shirtless and barefoot peoples.

In the interview, Pressley also spoke with former NAACP General Counsel Secretary Kim Keenan regarding her thoughts on the speech and the impact of society today. It was inside the Riverside Church in NY that Martin Luther King Jr. shocked the country by declaring his opposition to the war in Vietnam. Martin Luther King Jr. will receive a $500,000 upgrade within the coming year. This program, however, grew into a surveillance program in effort to stop the growing civil rights movement in the 1960s. "I just feel like they're not on the side of the people- they're so caught up in "We have to win because we're the Dems" or "We have to win because we're the Republicans" and nobody's anxious about where they're leaving the people in these arguments that leave us with racism, militarism, and poverty". We could end child poverty in America, we could provide everybody with health care. "If he hadn't come we might have been still fighting now". Groups like #BlackLivesMatter have also been viewed as a "hate group" to some in the same way the SCLC and Black Panther Party was over 50 years ago.

Dr. King first came to Memphis in March 1968 for a non-violent protest. His speech at Riverside raises: What are we going to do with what he said today? Perhaps a new spirit is rising among us.

This is Democracy Now!

Dr. King promised to return and he did, but he would never march again. Therefore we as faith leaders will call upon government officials to do some civil searching so that we may save the soul of America from destruction and annihilation.

A political leader who dined with royalty and met with presidents at the White House found himself increasingly drawn to the plight of poor people around the world.
