“Black Freedom is essential to everybody’s freedom”. Repost from @docmellymel- A VICTORY TODAY!!!!
This morning, we marched into court led by a fearless legal team and supported by hundreds of folks in the courtroom and lobby. We said loudly, “No plea deal! We want the charges dropped. We have a right and a duty to fight for our people!” And WE WON!!!!
So deeply grateful to the tens of thousands of folks who stood up and demanded an end to the criminalization of Black protest. All praises to our Creator, our mightiest Ancestors, and those on whose behalf we struggle. Thank you to my family, to the Mama and Baba freedom fighters who walked before us, and to the beautiful family that I have gained through this work. I am so blessed to be a part of such a beloved community. Thank you for your unwavering support and tireless work.
NOW...let’s channel that energy into the real freedom struggle! See you on the frontlines!
