Public outcry and rally info[edit]

I moved Public Outcry to its own section. If anyone has a problem with this, please say so. Anyways, does anyone mind updating the rally section with the number of people attending, who attended, etc.? I'll try to do it tomorrow if nobody does.Ophois 03:34, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Sounds good to me. Qworty 05:15, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

In the rally section, it says "a rally hailed as the new civil rights struggle of the 21st century was a poignant reminder of incidents which punctuated the civil rights struggles begun in the 1950s was held". Does that sound POV to anyone else?Ophois 02:16, 24 September 2007 (UTC)


The previous wording made it seem like the rally was held even though every thing was fine, which it is not. The overturning of the attempted murder conviction still leaves Bell facing a hefty sentence, which isn't even the issue to begin with, but the lack of fair judicial process which hasn't been addressed.

Yeah, and not only that, but the current wording makes it sound like the rally was only for the Jena 6, when in fact it was held for all African Americans throughout the United States who have been and are being unfairly treated by a justice system that has been scientifically proven to be racist.

Thank you for pointing that out. It was worded that way because it was scheduled to be held when Bell was sentenced, and some were considering cancelling the event because the charges were overturned.Ophois 18:48, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Scientifically proven, eh? Dear non-biased wiki-editors, you are going to have your handsful with this one.
