InPDUM's flyer for the march states,

"We are tired of lies and injustices. What really happened at the house of Hydra Lacy and why did Foster have the house and all the evidence destroyed?

"Who ordered martial law in our community that brought in federal, state and police from various other localities occupying our community with guns and armored vehicles?

"Why was our community cordoned off and cars and buses searched alongwith gun-toting military forces going house to house searching when they didn’t even know who they were looking for?

"Who made the decision to try Nicolas Lindsey as an adult?

"What is the relationship between Foster and Bubba the Love Sponge and did Bubba have Goliath Davis fired? What do Foster and Harmon have to do with Bubba’s public radio call for the assassination of African People’s Socialist Party Chairman Omali Yeshitela?"

Demands of the march include:

  • Resignation of mayor Foster and police chief Harmon
  • Reinstatement of Goliath Davis and apology to his family
  • End cover-up of Hydra Lacy killing
  • Public, transparent reinvestigation of cases of TyRon Lewis, Jarell Walker, Marquell McCullough and Javon Dawson
  • Rescind decision to try Nicolas Lindsey as an adult
  • Economic development for entire African community
Marchers will assemble at the Uhuru House, located at 1245 18th Ave S in St. Petersburg, beginning at 9am.
