Due to the police security zone, we will assemble at 12 noon [on March 30] in Court Center Square (between Madison and Jefferson) in downtown Memphis. Spread the word. Email email@example.com if more information is needed.
Memphis, Tennessee hosts its Klan rally on March 30, 2013. The City Council says hoods will not be allowed. That must be inconvenient for all the black Klan members in Memphis - people who participate in the elaborate cover-up regarding the police kidnapping and murder of Larry Neal, my mentally, physically disabled brother, in 2003, and deny his family due process of law. The Memphis Commercial Appeal did not state whether or not Hezekiah Sistrunk, Esq. of Atlanta plans to attend, but one can probably check The Cochran Firm's website for that information. One might expect David McLaughlin, Esq. and other Cochran Firm attorneys to attend if only they could wear hoods. No one can doubt The Cochran Firm's loyalty to the premise that guides the Klan, which is similar to the doctrine that was/is faithfully applied by the FBI's Counter Intelligence Program, called "CoIntelPro." I described this program in my article, "Mary Neal's Black History Month 2011." An excerpt is below:
1. Tax Wall Street transactions. Just a 2% sales tax on stocks and bonds traded on Wall Street could pay off the entire national debt in no time.
2. Stop using trillions of dollars (borrowed money) and our children to police the world or spread imperialism.
3. Stop all tax breaks for corporations that manufacture, assemble or deliver goods and services in/from overseas locations or in prisons. Increase tariffs on imports, and levy additional taxes on products made in prisons. The Klansmen may not have been told that many jobs we believe went overseas actually went to a slave plantation (prison) nearby, including former union jobs.
4. Divest or Resign. God said no man can serve two masters, yet this is what we expect government officials to do. As long as they ARE the corporations, they cannot be expected to place the needs of the People over their own stock portfolios. Get corporations out of government.
5. Repeal every law that violates the U.S. Constitution. Some states have repealed NDAA Section 1021 (concentration camp provision) as it applies to Americans only. They may not know about congressional bills to strip Americans of their citizenship. We all sink or swim together on this Titanic.
Instead of oppressing and intimidating minorities, it would behoove Klansmen to apply their collective energy to demanding liberty and justice for ALL. In fact, it would make sense for Klansmen to work in unity with all Americans to accomplish the five Changes numerated above and such other changes as deemed necessary to remove elitists' feet from Americans' throats. That would be more effective than slapping mulatto babies, shooting black youths, lynching middle aged, harmless black mental patients like Larry Neal, or risking Martial Law to hold a rally in racist Memphis among so many closet Klansmen who are black as well as white to protest the renaming of a city park that was originally named after a Klansman. Accomplishing positive change requires unity, rather than allowing elitists to play one racial group against another while they gather and keep all the wealth of the nation through unjust laws, wrongful foreclosures, corporate bailouts, tax breaks for the very rich, concentration camps and prisons. Positive Change is more difficult than holding rallies. It requires unity.
While the Klan prepares for its rally, according to the Memphis Black Autonomy Federation, the Memphis City Council is considering legislation to make it more difficult to get a permit for a march and a rally. JoNina Ervin said, "This is unconstitutional and a blatant attempt to suppress the First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and the right of citizens to redress their grievances to the government. If the proposal becomes law, one group that it would very likely be used against is Black Autonomy Copwatch, to stop our protests against police murder and brutality." However, rally they will. See the announcement of a mass anti-Klan protest below, followed by references used for this article - links with more information:
(Memphis, Tenn.) – A multiracial coalition of activists around the United States will come here on March 30 for a mass protest against the Ku KluxKlan.
“This is 2013, not 1913. The KKK is a white terrorist organization whose fear-mongering tactics will no longer be tolerated,” said JoNina Ervin, the acting chair of the Memphis Black Autonomy Federation (MBAF), a local social justice group that created the anti-Klan coalition.
Hundreds of people throughout the United States are expected to participate in the protest led by the Ida B. Wells Coalition Against Racism and Police Brutality, Ervin said.
The Klan is coming to Memphis, a majority black city, to protest the recent decision by the Memphis City Council to change the name of a park in downtown Memphis named after Nathan Bedford Forrest. He was the first grand wizard of the Klan and a Confederate general in the Civil War whose troops massacred hundreds of slaves.
The Klan has filed a permit with the City of Memphis to hold a march and rally on March 30 at the Shelby County Courthouse.
“It is a disgrace that Memphis officials took so long to rename Forrest Park,” Ervin said. Most big cities in the southern United States changed the names of parks and monuments named after Confederate generals years ago," she said. "Forrest Park was renamed Health Sciences Park."
Permit Filed for Ku-Klux-Klan Rallly in Memphis
The Ku Klux Klan has filed a permit with the city to hold a protest rally over the renaming of Memphis parks. The permit requests a date of Saturday, March 30 at the steps of the Memphis Courthouse.

Wrongful Death of Larry Neal
The lynching of a mentally, physically ill black man in Memphis Shelby County Jail, in a so-called "chocolate city," and nearly ten years of CoIntelPro-like oppression against his family to prevent public discovery of the murder proves that the Klan has complicity from many public officials suppressing minorities, including help from African Americans in Memphis, Tennessee and Washington, D.C.

Note: Please try to comment below if you have any difficulty opening the twelve(12) links and seeing the three pictures on this page. Below is a photo of Mary Neal protesting at the Georgia Superior Court building in Atlanta, where Judge Wendy Shoob pronounced The Cochran Firm nonexistent in this state in order to save the crooks who saved Shelby County Jail from our lawsuit for Larry Neal's wrongful death. She is Jewish, but if blacks can suppress a black family for the system, why not Jews? What working class people of every race need to know is this: We need to unite against oppression from elitists. They are already integrated. See my poem, "Elite Integration" which is posted below.
