BLACK WOMENS LIVES MATTER....

WHO IS MARISSA ALEXANDER? NELL AND LAJUANA EXPLAIN BELOW.



Black Women’s Lives Matter: Free Marissa NOW Caravan Berkeley DOCUMENTARY needs crowdfunding.  https://www.facebook.com/events/1016900914992618/?ref=br_tf

The Description:

About 8 women in a large veggie-oil truck ( see at end of description) and an 8 seater SUV drove in a caravan from Berkeley, California to Jacksonville, Florida.

The caravan left from Berkeley January 11th and arrived in Jacksonville by the 25th, going thru at least 15 cities where theyconnected with local activists and allies, held teach-ins, dropped banners and flyers, and engaged in direct action to FREE MARISSA NOW!

The goal for embarking on this caravan was three-fold:

1) we want Marissa Alexander to become a well known household name;

2) we want her fight for freedom to be a STAND UP, FIGHT BACK cause around the country;

 3) on January 27th, we want the entire nation's eyes on Jacksonville, Florida and Judge James Daniel, plus State Attorney General Angela Corey  so the heinous, racist, misogynist crimes against Marissa. STOP NOW!

Most importantly, they sought a full pardon for Marissa Alexander.

Self-defense is NOT a crime and Marissa should never have done any time. AND NOW WE NEED TO MAKE A DOCUMENTARY OF OUR JOURNEY AND NEED YOUR HELP FOR CROWDFUNDING TO MAKE THIS DOCUMENTARY HAPPEN.

This is a performance-activist piece by the Free Marissa Now East Bay caravan group in Berkeley, CA Dec 28 2014. We had a potluck and fundraising teach-in event. This event is part of a fundraising initiative to raise national awareness about Marissa Alexander, who fired a warning shot to defend herself against her husband who was beating her (and he had a dcoumented history already, a restraining order against him, and had put her in the hospital before) . Marissa was arrested and put in jail while her husband was not arrested and took custody of their 9 day old baby. Marissa's warning shot harmed no one, and even though she is in Florida and thought she could claim the 'stand her ground' defense against this abuse, she was put in jail by Angela Corey. The Free Marissa Now East Bay caravan group is raising money to do a cross country caravan from Berkeley to Jacksonville FL, to arrive there on Jan 27 2015, the day of Marissa's new trail date. The caravan will do social justice teach-ins throughout the nation's cities, educating people about the racist-misogynistic criminal justice system that punishes many Black womyn like Marissa. This is their first 'draft' of the performance they would like to go, during the teach-ins, along with song, to educate people about these important issues. Please click on the link in the video to fund us! Also, the caravan is looking for more womyn to join the caravan. contact Xan Joi at joissey@gmail.com
