On Saturday, February 9, some 7,000 people attended the second annual HKonJ -- Historic Thousands on Jones Street in Raleigh -- rally and march to the state capital for a progressive agenda. See www.hkonj.com for media coverage, comments of participants, photos, video clips, the text of a REPORT card on the 2007 General Assembly in response to the HKONJ agenda, and to utilize new media tools to make this moment into a large movement for change.
Congressman G.K. Butterfield has asked the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate charges of prosecutorial misconduct in the case of James Johnson, a young man jailed for more than three years for a murder he did not commit. Johnson now faces bogus charges of being an accessory to the crime after the fact. Details on this and other developments in the Johnson case and other cases of racial discrimination in the criminal justice system of North Carolina can be found on our companion web site, www.ncprosecutorialmisconduct.com.

'We' Is the most important word in the social justice vocabulary. The issue is not what we can't do, but what we CAN do when we stand together. With an upsurge in racism/hate crimes, criminalization of young black males, insensitivity to the poor, educational genocide, and the moral/economic cost of a war, we must STAND together now like never before.'
