Here's just a few places where the FTP Movement will be this month:

DAM E-mail flyer.jpg
Hip Hop for Palestine is unifying Atlanta's hip hop community in support of Palestine's biggest hip hop crew, Da Arabic MCs (DAM) and their message of resistance. 

For over 10 years, DMA's brothers by blood and friendship, Suhell, Tamer and Mahmoud have told their stories of Palestine's plight. DAM's music is a unique fusion of east and west, combining Arabic percussion rhythms, Middle Eastern melodies, and urban hip hop. One of the first groups to rap in Arabic, DAM's song "Min Irhabi" ("Who's the Terrorist") became the anthem for Palestinian resistance both within and beyond their borders.

With resounding support from the hip hop community, Hip Hop for Palestine welcomes Detroit's Invincible, an MC on the forefront of the Palestinian cause & Khaki Mustafa, a socially conscious Palestinian-American hip-hop artist, plus addresses from prominent local activists and appearances by local MCs such as J-Live, Rasheeda Ali, Sa-Roc/Sol Messiah, Ras Kofi, Methuzulah and Khalila Ali.

The purpose of this exhibit is to re-ignite the necessary awareness of
the events surrounding the legal murder of Troy Davis. As with Sean Bell, Katheryn Johnston, Oscar Grant and countless other victims of injustice, we forget the responsibilities we have as individuals, as a community and as a nation to continue the fight for true freedom and justice.
This art show is a call to rally visual artists to produce pieces that will make a statement against injustice, challenge responsibility, create awareness, and motivate and inspire action in our communities. 
There was a Troy Davis before Troy Davis, and there will be many more if we don't take a stance.

On the eve of the 5 year commemoration of the cold blooded murders of 92-year old Kathryn Johnston who was gunned down in her own home by the Atlanta Police Department, just 4 days before the murder of 22-year old Sean Bell who was slain on the morning of his wedding day by the New York Police Department, FTP Movement will discuss the connection between these executions and the most recent state sponsored execution of Troy Anthony Davis. 

Guests will discuss the cases, failures, progress and practical solutions.
