Call for Indictments in 59-year-old Case

The alternate world of independent media brings us golden nuggets of truth like this:

Civil rights activists in Georgia reenacted a 59-year-old lynching this month to push for indictments in the murder of four African Americans, two men and two women, one of whom was seven-months pregnant at the time. No one was ever prosecuted in the case. We speak with the Georgia Association of Black Elected Officials, which organized the reenactment.

Thanks, once again, to Democracy Now! for doing kick-ass work.
