> A Call To Free St. Louis-The Jericho Project
> In the book of Joshua-Chapter 6 found in the Holy Bible, the biblical
> character Joshua and his supporters walked around the city of Jericho
> for seven days and on the seventh day with the help of their God, the
> city walls came crumbling down and his people were freed from the
> rulers of Jericho.
> It is in the above spirit, that the Universal African Peoples
> Organization (UAPO) cordially invites you to participate in a
> spiritual re-enactment of the above story. We will march around the
> St. Louis City Hall Complex (12th @ Tucker) for seven consecutive days
> starting Friday,March 27,2009 and ending April 2,2009. We will begin
> each morning at 8:00
> The purpose of our Jericho re-enactment in today's time is to ask God
> to help us Free St. Louis by bringing down the walls of voter apathy.
> Evidence of this apathy was clearly demonstrated in the recent March
> 3,2009 St. Louis Primary Election when only 14% of the over 220,000
> registered voters cast a ballot.
> We will also be asking God to help us bring down the walls of racial
> bigotry, ineptitude, and corruptness of Mayor Francis G. Slay
> administration. We will be asking God to put into the hearts of the
> registered voters to cast a vote to end Slay's political rule in the
> upcoming Tuesday April 7,2009 General Election.
> Green Party candidate, brother Reverend Elston K. McCowan and
> Independent candidate sister Maida Coleman have been invited each day
> to share their vision of a better St. Louis. As of this date Sunday
> March 29,2009, we have completed three days. Reverend McCowan has
> marched with us and we await Ms. Maida Coleman.
> We also recognize "Faith Without Works Is Dead" and pray that people
> will involve themselves in the movement to Free St. Louis.
> Remember the dates and time (8:00am) that we have committed to march
> around St. Louis City Hall Complex. On the last day, Thursday April
> 2.2009 we march around the compex seven times as done in the Book of
