Organize a Day in Solidarity with African People, Gainesville!
September 11, 2016 @ 2:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Sponsored by the Uhuru Solidarity Movement~ (USM) Gainesville. Come out to help to organize the Day in Solidarity with African People and the campaign for Justice for the Three Drowned Black Girls! On March 31, 2016, 16-year-old Dominique, along with her best friends La’Niyah and Ashaunti, were chased at high speeds by the Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies and their car rammed into a pond where they drowned while trapped in the car. Leaked dash cam video showed the police standing around doing nothing and casually commenting on the screams of the drowning girls.
The Sheriff, “Killer Bob” Gualtieri, immediately publicly slandered the girls and their families, blaming them for the girls’ deaths. USM is supporting the international campaign, led by the African People’s Socialist Party, to expose these murders and hold “Killer Bob” accountable for his crimes against the black community by demanding he resign, and that charges be pressed against his henchmen.
At the Day in Solidarity with African People, this October 19th, USM~Gainesville will have the honor of hosting Kunde Mwamvita (formerly Yashica Clemmons), mother of Dominique Battle, will speak justice for the three girls.
We also have the great honor of hosting Chairman Omali Yeshitela who will make the keynote presentation at the event. Penny Hess, Chairwoman of the African People’s Solidarity Committee, will speak on reparations to African people and the role of white people in solidarity with African liberation.
Come out and help us organize and build the movement for white solidarity with black power and reparations to African people! Help build for the October 19th event for a Day in Solidarity with African People! Contact email@example.com for more info.
