San Francisco Activist Killed in New Orleans
Community Mourns Loss of Kirsten Brydum
Close friends report that the body of San Francisco activist Kirsten Brydum was found Saturday in New Orleans, where Kirsten had traveled as part of a popular education tour. Kirsten was known locally as an organizer of the Really Really Free Market in Dolores Park, a monthly gathering to freely exchange goods and services with no money, trade or barter.

According to press reports, Kirsten was fatally shot several times in the head. New Orleans police say they are awaiting a report from the coroner, who has not yet released information about the death.

Kirsten's death follows closely after news of the murder of another young activist, Marcella "Sali" Grace Eiler, in Oaxaca. Those who knew Kirsten or Sali have been invited to Million Fishes Cellar Space on Sept. 30th to grieve and to honor the women and support one another. Read More
