NEW YORK CITY CANNABIS PARADE
Saturday May 4, 2013 Union Square Park, New York City
A REVOLUTION IS HAPPENING NOW.
Around the world people are rising up and demanding an end to the violence, disease, death, corruption, waste of money and waste of lives that come from making cannabis a crime.
Cannabis prohibition is the perfect tool of complete social control.
It requires a state of constant war against a plant and anyone who grows it or uses it to feel better.
It has always been an instrument of fear and demonization, institutional racism, mass incarceration and disenfranchisement.
It is the new Jim Crow.
It maintains monopolies for the alcohol, tobacco and pharmaceutical industries while enriching prison and defense contractors in a national security industry that thrives on constant war.
It prevents cultivation of hemp, an important renewable resource that could compete with petroleum and timber and reduce global warming.
People can see.
The revolution has come to Colorado and Washington, Guatemala and Uruguay.
On May 4, people in hundreds of cities around the world will go into the streets to demand an end to cannabis prohibition.
ON MAY 4, BRING THE REVOLUTION
IN CONSCIOUSNESS TO THE STREETS
OF THE WORLD CAPITAL,
NEW YORK CITY.
Stop the Arrests
Release the Medicine
End the War
Free the Prisoners
Heal the Sick
Unite the Nations
