The Coalition for Justice for Martin Lee Anderson and numerous other civic and community groups have organized to address the injustices in the death of Martin Lee Anderson and request your support as we "March for Justice."
On Friday, April 21, 2006, civil rights leaders, legislators and citizens abroad will be marching for JUSTICE. 105 days would have passed and no one held accountable for the tragic death of 14-year old Martin Lee Anderson.
The march procession will leave the Tallahassee Leon County Civic Center toward the Capitol building at 8:45 a.m. Parking at the civic center is FREE to march participants. The program will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. and will include well known activists such as Rev. Al Sharpton, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr. (Rainbow PUSH Coalition), the Honorable Greg Mathis and Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins.
It is the intent that this march will prompt our leaders to take the following actions:
1. Release the results of the second autopsy performed on March 13, 2006;
2. The Attorney General's office file a civil suit on behalf of the State of Florida;
3. The Sheriff of Bay County, officers and nurse who were involved in the beating be arrested or reprimanded for their actions and inactions; and
4. The Bay County Medical Examiner, Charles Siebert, be removed or in the alternate throw out the findings of the initial autopsy as well as the findings of the FDLE investigation.
PLEASE SUPPORT THIS EVENT AS WE JOIN HANDS AND DEMAND JUSTICE FOR MARTIN LEE ANDERSON.
