Justice for Philando Castile Rally in Oakland Tonight
Was just made aware of this by William Fitzgerald. Philando Castile was the man shot and killed in his car, for absolutely nothing, while his wife live-streamed it on Facebook. His four year old daughter was also in the car. The officer was just acquitted of his murder. Our justice system is anything but just.
Here’s the information from the FB invite. Show up in solidarity:
The Bay Area refuses to accept the final verdict made by the jury members in Minnesota this past week. The officer who shot and killed Philando Castile, while his wife and daughter were present, IS GUILTY.
There is no debate, and there is no justification for murdering an innocent man. Oakland wishes to stand in solidarity with Philando’s family, and we wish to voice our intolerance for police terror NOW. There is no time to wait–the system has and continues to fail black folks in Amerikkka.
WHEN: SATURDAY, JUNE 17
WHERE: Oscar Grant Plaza, Oakland CA
Bring signs, drums, any materials to make your voice heard. THE BAY AREA STANDS WITH PHILANDO CASTILE AND HIS FAMILY. WE WILL FIGHT AND DEMAND JUSTICE FOR BLACK LIVES.
