I haven't blogged in what seems like ages. And here I am, choosing the final moments before sunset on Yom Kippur to do so. It' s just that the situation with the Jena 6 has me all riled up. Especially because last week, we paid tribue to Sekou Sundiata here in Austin. I think about what he wrote about in his short 58 years, and know that we must generate a collective creative and political response to what's happening.

Sign the petition: and if you can, send money. Watch this video, too. In case you wanted some information:

Yesterday was the first in what promises to be a series of protests as the injustice continues to unfold.

thanks for blogging about this. i signed the petition. i always feel a bit naive everytime something like this happens and i go, "huh? what year is this?" i guess it's a mixture of wishful thinking and denial. i just hope for real justice.
