This is about hate crimes and this is about ignorance. This is about how we need to do something about it, and how we need to educate people for the life of others. This needs to be made apparent to those who are capable of hurting, killing, or being abusive to another human being for being who they are. Recently, a fremont/newark boy who dressed as a women and identified as a women, went to a party and met four boy. they were flirting with her and when they found out he was really a boy, they beat her, strangled her, and burried her in the serria mountains. they are trying to get off all charges, including off hate crime charges (which is one 1-3 years in jail) and might get off bail was well. This behavoir is unacceptable anywhere. Because it happed down a few streets from my house scares me to no end. we cannot have this be \'another murder\' in time, but a situation to learn from and fight for. Jorge has called a demonstration near Eddie Araujo\'s school on Friday Oct. 25th at 5 p.m. We would really appreciate it if you all could join this anti-hate, anti-homophobic \'protest\'/demonstraton. We will be marching down Mowry Ave. towards the location of the memorial. If we leave this murder without pointing out the fact of homophobia in society, no one will learn.
