RENISHA MCBRIDE WAS A 19 YEAR OLD AFRICAN - AMERICAN WOMAN WHO ON NOVEMER 2, 2013 WAS INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT IN A DETROIT SUBURB. SHE KNOCKED ON A WHITE HOMEOWNER'S DOOR NAME TED WAFER LOOKING FOR HELP. HE FIRED A SHOTGUN AT RENISHA THROUGH THE SCREENDOOR AND KILLED HER.

BLACK LIVES MATTER. WHEREVER WE LIVE, WE MUST SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE RACIST WAR ON BLACK AND BROWN YOUTH IN THIS COUNTRY.

WE IN OAKLAND KNOW FAR TO WELL THE INJUSTICES OF MUREDRS THAT GET SWEPT UP UNDER THE RUG. COPS, JUDGES AND VIGILANTES ALL LIE TO PROTECT EACH OTHER FROM BEING CHARGED WITH MURDER IN THIS COUNTRY. WE IN OAKLAND KNOW THAT INJUSTICE IS A GLOBAL EPIDEMIC.

ALL FAMILIES AND SUPPORTERS OF MURDERED VICTIMS OF VIOLENCE ARE ENCOURAGED TO COME OUT AND SPEAK. BRING BANNERS, POSTERS, SIGNS WHATEVER YOU LIKE.

IN SOLIDARITY WITH DETROIT, WE WILL HAVE A SPEAKOUT, MARCH, AND RALLY THROUGH THE STREETS OF EAST OAKLAND TO EXPOSE AND BRING AWARENESS TO THIS GLOBAL EPIDEMIC DUE TO THE FACT THAT OUR COMMUNITIES ARE SUFFERING FROM LOSS OF LIFE SO MUCH THAT SOME OF US HAVE GOTTEN IMMUNED TO DEATH.

people are also injured and have to live with injuries done by police state.it affects everyone around.its not just for people who died. america too focused on just death.no one wants to be permanently injured too.
