Uhuru Movement leader Diop Olugbala brutally attacked by police & arrested for protesting Nutter's budget at 3/19 City Council session:



by

On Wednesday, March 19, 2009, police attacked members of the International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement (InPDUM) in the gallery of the City Council during the City Council session where Mayor Nutter was announcing his 2010 budget. International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement members were holding signs protesting Mayor Nutter’s budget, which cuts essential services for the African population while spending more than one billion dollars a year for police and prisons attacking the black community. Subsequent to the police attack, InPDUM international organizer Diop Olugbala, (aka Wali Rahman), and member Shabaka Mnombatha, (aka Franklin Moses), were brutally arrested and are being charged with aggravated assault on police!

City Council will have a hearing on whether or not Nutter can have "discretion" to determine "emergencies" that merit Martial Law....to ban rallies and assembly and so forth.

This is copy of the Bill that Nutter hopes to get passed by City Council on Wed  Feb 4.   Thanks to Hallwatch for making this accessible...though Hallwatch will be going-out-of-business in the near future.

 One question is...what is being planned, or what is expected, by the Nutters et al, that would prompt such authoritarian pre-emptive legislation? Should we move out of the city now?  This is more of an Omen than a Bill.
