Solidarity with Charlottesville – 8/13/17
Many thanks to all who came out (est 225), and those many of you with us in spirit!! It was a wonderful event – community- and movement-building, which is what we need.
The event was put together in a matter of hours, with cosponsor Stronger Together WNY. People spread the word, and the community came out. (So did the TV news stations.) Thanks too to Johanna C. Dominguez – and her Activists of Buffalo site – for the above and so many great photos!!
For those of you who missed the rally (and/or march), you should know there’s been a call by Heather Heyer’s family for a candlelight vigil outside people’s houses at 10pm EST. For more info, https://www.facebook.com/events/1826424191020516/
Dr. King’s words come so much to mind in these times!
- Injustice Anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
- I believe that Unarmed Truth and Unconditional Love will have the final word in reality. That’s why Good temporarily defeated is stronger than Evil triumphant. And
- We Shall Overcome!!
We also call #45 to account – his reluctance to name and/or chastise the hate groups and hate crimes shows his approval of racism and violence.
