S.O.N. Rise



            If you’ve been a coma for the last few days, you’re still probably aware that The S.O.N. dropped on 9/30 and seems to be doing pretty well. I encourage you to try to support a local music shop, but if that’s not an option you can order it from Best Buy, Amazon, Itunes, or Dope House

Alright, ladies and gents; the Day of Unity approaches. If you’re not sure if you should go or not, consider this. County election day is November 4th. Now is the time all those judges, District attorneys, commissioners, etc will be paying close attention to their constituents. We know that the justice system in Harris County has been running on the knife’s edge between Business-as-Usual and Corrupt-as-Fuck for some time now. Although generally I encourage y’all to educate yourselves about the case and spread that knowledge, it has been suggested that we stick to a simpler message for the protest; Retrial.

            I think this makes sense, given the potentially volatile nature of a public protest. If you decide to respect this, don’t let yourself get drawn into an argument; there is a time and a place for debate, naturally, but let’s try to keep 10/3 focused on the retrial.

            Nibu Abraham of Free Press Houston interviewed Carlos Coy for an article that you can read here: http://www.freepresshouston.com/spm/. I don’t think that anyone could have summed up this cluster-fuck of a situation any better or more concisely. Please give it a read, and share it with your friends. Post it on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, wherever you spend time. If you comment remember to stay calm, be clear, and don’t let anyone get under your skin.

            I will probably not be in Houston for the protest, so if you go please take pictures and post them to the blog Facebook page. Those of that can’t be there would love to see how it goes.

The day of unity needs to happen regularly. It should be "days" of unity. We need to keep bothering them until they consider a retrial. We need to let them know we won't stop until we get what we want. And at least get people curious enough to start looking into the case again.

I was thinking the same thing we gotta bang those pots and pans and make them listen. This needs to be quarterly or at least annual.
