Join The Jena 6 National Walkout On Monday

The Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, National Hip-Hop Political Convention, Change The Game, and Sankofa Community Empowerment are being joined by Mos Def, Talib Kweli, M-1, Immortal Technique and student leaders from over 50 campuses to call for a National Student Walk-Out to rally and show support for the Jena 6. Wear black.

Here are their demands:

Judge J.P. Mauffray and District Attorney Reed Walters have engaged in a string of egregious actions, the most recent of which was the denial of bail for Mychal Bell on Friday. We call for:

+ All charges against the Jena 6 be dropped.

+ The immediate release of Mychal Bell.

+ The United States Department of Justice to convene an immediate inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the arrests and prosecutions of the Jena 6.

+ Judge Mauffray to be recused from presiding over Bell ‘s juvenile court hearings or other proceedings.

+ The Louisiana Office of Disciplinary Counsel to investigate Reed Walters for unethical and possibly illegal conduct.

+ The Louisiana Judiciary Commission investigate Judge Mauffray for unethical conduct.

+ The Jena School District superintendent to be removed from office.
