Recent Events in Ferguson, Missouri

The Justice Party stands in solidarity with the people in Ferguson, Missouri who are protesting the killing of Michael Brown. We call on all members of the Justice Party and all Americans to protest the spectrum of inequities — including the ultimate price, in this case paid by Michael Brown — perpetrated against minority youth in our country. We also call on the Ferguson police department and law enforcement agencies across the country to err on the side of restraint in these types of emotionally charged circumstances. Although it is not possible to avoid the use of deadly force in all cases, we can reduce unnecessary deaths of both citizens and police officers with the proper training of our law enforcement personnel.

Additionally, we call on the Israeli government, along with the international community, to put in place measures that will guarantee the immediate and permanent dignity, equality and basic human rights of all Palestinians; whose right to uninhibited movement, worship, and commerce has been systematically diminished, resulting in a predictable retaliation by Hamas which, in turn, has precipitated Israel's brutal military responses.

The reality, though, is far different.
