    September 23, 2007. Malik Shabazz, Esq., Attorney and leader of the New Black Panther Party for Self Defense, announced today that members of the New Black Panther Party will begin patrolling the streets of Jena, Louisiana this week to protect the Jena 6 families and Black Jena residents against open and imminent threats of Ku Klux Klan and White supremacist violence.

    Dr. Shabazz announced that The New Black Panther Party was spearheading a coalition entitled The Security and Protection Committee of the Jena 6 (SPC-Jena 6) which would include several organizations and volunteers from around the nation that will coordinate and protect against Neo-Nazi and Ku Klux Klan types operating in that part of Louisiana. This coalition will include the New Black Panther Party for Self Defense, the Millions More Movement, the Black Muslims, volunteers from the local Jena Community and National Civil Rights Organizations. The coalition will coordinate and lead an all volunteer effort that will man shifts and provide personal security for the Jena 6 families as well as local residents under the threat of Klan intimidation in the wake of the successful September 20th march in Jena.

    Recently several White Supremacist websites posted the names addresses and phone numbers of the Jena 6 families and urging “White Citizens to do Justice to the Jena 6â€. Several families of the Jena 6 have been called and threatened by racist white supremacists and other Klan types groups with hanging nooses have been seen frequenting the area with confederate flags. Sadly, the Jena police department and the county Sheriff have announced that they would not provide protection for the families of the Jena 6 under threat.

    Malik Shabazz, Esq. said:

    “As Black leadership, we have a moral and ethical
    Obligation to secure the safety and security of the
    Jena 6 families and the Black residents of Jena
    Louisiana. The New Black Panther Party, the
    Millions More Movement, and other volunteers from
    Civil rights organizations will spearhead a
    nationwide call to provide security, patrols and
    protection for the families and residents over the
    upcoming months.â€

    Attorney Shabazz also said:

    “This threat is real. The September 20TH, which we
    were a part of organizing, has created a resentment
    and backlash in certain quarters of the white
    community in Jena. In the spirit of the Deacons Of
    Defense, we intend to exercise our full range of
    legal rights of defense and protection to ensure that
    this very real threat of violence is neutralized. I
    want to be clear, in the name of God we as Black
    Men will not stand idly by and be weak in this

    The New Black Panther Party has the experience to handle this assignment, as witnessed in Jasper, Texas in 1998 when the New Black Panthers chased the Klan from Jasper following the beheading of James Byrd Jr. The Millions More Movement is a coalition of activist organizations that were inspired by the Million Man March of 1995 and the Millions More Movement of 2005. Attorney Malik Shabazz, the leader and attorney for the New Black Panther Party also is the President of Black Lawyers for Justice (BLFJ) and a national Co-Convener of the Millions More Movement. The New Black Panther Party is in 36 Cities across America, Africa, England and the Caribbean. All were active in organizing the September 20th March.
