Former Presidential Candidate Ron Daniels, on How the Fight for Civil Rights Continues Today

May 30, 2003

"The Republicans have gained control of both houses of the congress of the United States and their aim and goal is very clear, they also want to take over the judiciary…the right-wing, the arch-conservatives, the reactionaries they will control all three branches of government and that is terrifying to people of color."

Internationally renowned human and civil rights activist, Ron Daniels, is an outspoken expert on police brutality and hate crimes. He is the executive director of the Center for Constitutional Rights, where he is one of the leaders of the organization’s National Police Accountability Initiative.

Ron Daniels ran for U.S. president as an independent in 1992, and was the campaign manager in the South for Rev. Jesse Jackson’s 1988 presidential run.

He is also playing a leading role in the National African American Leadership Summit and the historic Million Man March.

He spoke two days ago at the Society for Ethical Culture in New York, at an event put together by Pacifica Radio’s WBAI, on the how and why the civil rights movement continues today.
