Save Tookie Williams - Nov. 30th


The State of California has set December 13th as the execution date for Stanely Tookie Williams, whose remarkable change from co-founder of the Crips gang to Nobel peace prize nominee was made into the movie "Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story" starring Jamie Foxx. Foxx has spoken up for Williams, saying "We can't let it happen. We've got to do everything we can to get the word out."

Take part in the international day of action locally at a teach-in taking place at UC Santa Cruz this Wednesday, November 30th at 7:30PM featuring professor Angela Davis, professor Paul Ortiz and a special performance from Rainbow Theatre.
