Do you want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money by completing a 500km bike ride in 30 days in aid of RACIAL JUSTICE NETWORK and every donation will help.
The oppression and destruction of Black and Brown bodies is global. The use of state forces against the most marginalised is global. The narrative of white liberals believing that we’re somehow better than the US is false and self deceiving.
So we will begin by saying we are devastated by yet another murder of a Black man. In the murder of Black people, the US continues to produce the consequences of a white supremacist system.This month we’ve also lost Tony McDade, a Black Trans man murdered by Florida police officers and Breonna Taylor, shot in her own home by police in Kentucky.
Just earlier this month we saw the shocking footage of police tasering Desmond Ziggy Mombeyarara in front of his young son. Yesterday we learned the news that Belly Mujinga’s death will not receive any further action. Sean Rigg, Sheku Bayoh, Sarah Reed, Mzee Mohammed, Christopher Alder (and many many more) have all been murdered while in police custody in the UK. The UK is not innocent. Now it's time to take a stand in solidarity as black lives DO matter.
Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
