Come get together the day after Christmas at Union Square in San Francisco with other folks who think that #Black Lives Matter.

Following the Call out from the #Blackout Collective to keep the momentum going around the holidays, we are going to have a gathering at Union Square in downtown SF to be a big presence in the face of all the post Christmas consumerism. invite your friends and comrades!

PLEASE READ BELOW IF PLANNING TO COME:

The aim for this event is for it to be family friendly and safe. This is not because of a belief that some tactics are better than others, this is just what I had the capacity to plan for right now.

I'm asking folks to use this event to plug the Ferguson National Demands, which you can scope here:

http://www.thedemands.org/

I'm also asking folks (and white folks in particular) to follow these protocols at event:

https://baysolidarity.wordpress.com/2014/12/19/protocolandprinciples/

(I know this document is specifically for white folks and this event is open to anyone; I think this is a well worded thing and the best we have to go on right now.)

We are explicitly not going to get down with property destruction at this event because we want it to be safe and available to anyone who wants to show up.

I'm also asking white folks to not appropriate black experiences with "I can't breathe" signs. All lives will matter when black lives aren't disrespected daily by law enforcement.

The goal of this event is to be sore thumb in the day after christmas shopping spree and to continue to build strong relationships with each other. The stronger our relationships, the more powerful we are, the bigger and badder stuff we can do.

Based on how many of us are there, we may just hang out an Union Square and give out flyers about the Ferguson national demands, or we may cruise to different sopping centers with our signs and making some noise.

and please give me feedback. praxis makes perfect, and its our duty to win.
