For more information:
Hi,I'm one of the french cousin of Idriss stelley who was shot by the police.I just want to thank you for the articles you write and which help us in france to follow what's going on.I know that my aunt is really strong but it's also really hard to lead this kind of fight and I hope that the media help her to have justice because we have the right to know what really happened to my cousin and the silence has to be broken.I'm conscious that police is protected but it's not fair and it has to end.I just want justice because it's too easy to be manipulated because you have no power(I mean politically) i know that my aunt have a big power:LOVE and PEACE.I believe in that too and i'm proud to say it.In france we have built a site and we try to make media aware but everything is stopped because of the present situation in States...but petitions work and we are waiting to have more informations...thanks for all and keep going a good job... Audrey(the "upsetter")
