Richmond Youth for Social Justice March Against Violence on MLK Day
At 10am on Monday, January 17, 2005 the Calhoun Community Center's sidewalk was jammed with 30-40 people. The heavily bundled crowd braved the 25 degree temperature to march through Downtown Richmond's Gilpin court promoting non-violence. In the middle of the group stood two young men with a banner that read, "Stop the Violence. Sponsored by Youth for Social Justice."
Inez Thornton came to read a poem about youth violence. "Violence is the cry of an unheard voice. When a child has no one to listen to them, then they lash out. We see it every day in this city, black communities aren't being heard."

Appalachia Apocalypse: The human face of Mountain Justice Summer
There is not only a dreadful ecological toll to Mountain Range Removal--but it has a human face as well. This is a call to action. The picture is of Jeremy Davidson, 3, who was killed when a boulder was dislodged by a bulldozer and came crashing through his bedroom from a Mountain Top Removal site. He was crushed in his sleep. The picture was taken by Michael Williamson.
Mountain Justice Summer is a direct call to action for the people to stand up to the attempted destruction of a people and a cultural heritage through mountain range removal. We must have your help to fight. Others ask for your money. We need you.... We are asking for volunteers to dedicate a summer to our efforts.... We see our call to action as an emergency plea, in desperate circumstances -- to rachet up the resistance to the atrocity of Mountain Range Removal before it's too late.
