Ending Mass Incarceration in Seaside/Tricounty
PAUSE THE CALLS: Black Lives Matter -Seaside will kick off the Monterey County rallies standing in solidarity with targeted groups of people who are scared and threatened by the new administration that is raring to reign with fascism and talks of destroying families and communities in light of the Trump Presidency with increasing racist rhetoric and violence nationwide, residents of Seaside and supporters from the broader region are gathering to declare that "Black Lives Matter!" In solidarity with affected communities and with struggles against police violence locally and across the country, we will stand together to demand: "No we won’t have it!" Regardless if you are African-American, a woman, undocumented immigrants, LGBTQ people or Muslims, it is time to unite and create safe places for everyone. Let's #ShutItDown. If they don't do it, then we the people will #ShutItDown. #PauseTheCalls, #DontWachTVOnJan20. #DontBuyIntotheFascism.
