Eric Oliver is an 18 year old black an who was arrested and jailed for defending himself and his family against a white lynch mob. This case is important because white lynch mob violence is still alive in the South. The struggle to defend Eric Oliver is a struggle to put an end to the old "down south justice" that we saw with Rosewood, Jena 6, Troy Davis and Trayvon Martin. No more Trayvons! No more Rosewoods! Defend Eric Oliver!
