The Innocence Tour begins 1st May 2015 
http://thesavoryfiles.org/#/tour/4569563453

The innocence bus tour was a vision of Johnnie Lee Savory as part of his, and many others, commitment and efforts to end the plague of wrongful convictions. Wrongful convictions have been experienced by many of our nation’s people without regard to race, age, or gender and is a result of a number of factors including false accusations, false confessions, eyewitness misidentification, ineffective assistance of counsel, and the most common cause, revealed in a recent study by the Better Government Association and the Center on Wrongful Convictions, alleged government error and misconduct by police, prosecutors, and forensic officials.

Innocent people the world over are being falsely accused, unjustly convicted, and sentenced to nightmarish imprisonment for crimes they did not commit. The cries of the innocent echo in the wind; no longer can we as a people turn a deaf ear we must not deny love, truth, or justice to one another. As the innocence bus tour journeys across America and to Canada let these two blessed and great nations serve as righteous examples to humanity

The innocent bus tour will highlight and profile cases of wrongful convictions while advocating for the innocent in the following ways: Recognizing the vital relationship between social support and reintegration, we will serve as a vehicle to connect the innocent with community resources; insisting that DNA testing is made available to persons who claim innocence, particularly, those facing lengthy sentences; demanding the innocent be set free, fully restored to his or her rightful citizenship, and given Immediate compensation for the wrongs that were committed against him or her. Additionally, we seek to end prosecutorial misconduct immunity and hold accountable our elected appointed officials who have sworn before God and man to protect the administration of justice by adhering to the spiritual word in which he or she places his or her hand, obeying the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.


Truth must go forward unhindered, human rights must be protected, and the captive must be set free.

The vision of the innocence bus tour is reunited communities and a healed nation where justice truly prevails and innocence is coveted.

************URGENT via Focus E15 Mothers********* Stop Candice and baby being sent out of London

************URGENT via Focus E15 Mothers********* Stop Candice and baby being sent out of London | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it

Beat'n TheStreet

Tuesday 25 November

Meet 12.30 Stratford Station or 1pm Bridge House, 320 High Street, E15

No to social cleansing!
Repopulate the Carpenters Estate

Come down to Bridge House - together we are stronger.

Candice and her baby are homeless, relying on friends and relatives for somewhere to stay. They were offered a place in Liverpool last year.
Now she is being told by staff at Bridge House that she can have an appointment with her housing officer but she is likely to be offered outside of London and if she refuses they will close her case.

Bridge House is overflowing Monday to Friday with families with children of all ages who have been evicted and have nowhere to go. Many are being offered places outside of London, miles from friends, families, support networks and their children's schools.

Less than five minutes walk from Bridge House is the Carpenters Estate, where hundreds of decent flats lie empty - we must continue to force the council to put people in these homes.
