MCHR Film: Confronting Police and Vigilante Violence

MCHR Film: Confronting Police and Vigilante Violence

Posted October 11th, 2018  |  News

Unarmed African Americans have been shot and killed by police and white vigilantes at an alarming rate. It happened to Laquan McDonald in Chicago and it happens in Detroit and its suburbs as well. Unlike the Chicago case, guilty police officers most often are exonerated.

The brief video and speakers will address this violence and the legal and activist challenges to such violence. We also hear news stories of people taking justice in to their own hands Facilitator will be Mark Fancher, (attorney with the ACLU), Gloria House (African American elder) and De’Von Burt, representative of Black Young People 100. Moderator: Fran Shor.

A Call of the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights – Let’s Work to Transform the Culture of Police Violence and State Terror

Posted October 3rd, 2018  |  News  |  Statements

When Europeans invaded the American continent in the 15th and 16th centuries, they either sought to plunder the wealth of the indigenous population or to establish colonies as an extension of the war capitalism practiced by their competing nation states. To satisfy the need for labor, European settlers imported African slaves in the 17th century, enacting, in the process, a harsh regime of exploitation throughout the colonies. Once these North American colonies achieved their independence through the formation of the United States in the late 18th century, those states continued to engage in war and expansion against the indigenous populations and to enslave people of African descent.
