Justice Or Else- Million Man March 20Anniversary displays Unity amongst All against Injustice



The numbers are not out yet,, at least not in full, but some are speculating the numbers may have succeeded the 2 million, that attended in 1995.  Unfortunately, I was unable to attend,  some were due to family constraints, while the other was for  fpr personal reasons. But I did watch it in Full.

Amazing unity was shown as Native Americans, Latinos, Haitian and Dominican, Palestinian brown women and men, calling for Justice and the stand against White Supremacy Racist Laws and the lack of concern for the high number of blacks being murdered with impunity by the States.  Mz. Jordan

Justice or Else" was the theme of a rally Saturday organized by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan to mark the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March.
Messages from the first march were echoed Saturday in speeches from African-American leaders, including Farrakhan, calling for unity and institutional reform in social justice issues affecting the black community.
    Farrakhan, 82, spoke to the crowd on the National Mall in Washington and reflected on the importance of passing the torch to the next generation.
    "We who are getting older... what good are we if we don't prepare young people to carry that torch of liberation to the next step? What good are we if we think we can last forever and not prepare others to walk in our footsteps?" he said.
    The overall message seemed to be directed at the black community at large, not just men. Many women and children were in the crowd and Farrakhan talked at length about how men should honor women.
    Another difference: This rally was clearly aimed at the digital generation. A website,www.justiceorelse.com, carried a live webcast of the events and made it easy for people to donate money or volunteer. Speakers encouraged the crowd to share images and video of the rally on social media, and #MillionManMarch became a trending topic for much of the day. Click to Read the Rest
