Stop Mass Inc. Co-Founder Carl Dix Speaks On “Rise Up October” & The Need For Mass Resistance

“The key thing that has to happen is that people have to take to the streets. There would be no discussion of all of this at a mainstream level if people didn’t speak up in Ferguson.

People are not accepting this, and we want to put it before all of society. Don’t feel like you can be neutral on this: which side are you on?
