Add comment on:2 Occupy Comrades Murdered This Week - Tsega and Alex
Some comrades from Occupy Oakland
On Tuesday July 31st, two steadfast Occupy comrades were violently murdered, Tsega Tsegay and Alex Mahan. Tsega was beaten to death by her husband, and Alex Mahan, a Stockton comrade, was killed in a driveby shooting. We know that these murders are the result of society built on violence, a society that destroys the lives of women, transpeople, queers, people of color, the poor, and everyone else who is not rich, white and a (cis) man. May the memories of our fallen comrades be fuel for our fire - fuel that helps us burn down this disgusting system that’s taken you from us and build a better one, together. You committed yourselves to this struggle and we will continue with you in our hearts always.
