In May 2012 the BAsics Bus Tour set off from Atlanta, GA to Sanford, FL to bring a message. Sanford is where 17 year old Trayvon Martin was murdered in a modern American lynching. This was printed on a banner in Spanish and English and taken throughout the region. Hundreds of people added their names and words of support. This was also done in cities throughout the country… as part of building the movement for revolution. This message is:
"No more generations of our youth, here and all around the world, whose life is over, whose fate has been sealed, who have been condemned to an early death or a life of misery and brutality, whom the system has destined for oppression and oblivion even before they are born. I say no more of that."
