Four and a half minute National Moment of Silence on Sunday, August 9th at 11:55AM CST
Would you join with me in
Ashland center at 12:55pm on Sunday 8/9/15? It would be meaningful to mourn together these senseless deaths (see below). Let me know if
you will join me. -DG
This idea came from an email (below) that I got from FergusonAction 7/27/15:
It has been almost one year since the murder of
Michael Brown, Jr. and the uprising that followed. Our movement has grown
immensely and here in Ferguson and St. Louis, we continue to fight for all
those who have been lost. From August 7-10th, we will stand together, united in
purpose, as we uphold our commitment to this movement for Black Lives.
Over the last year, our movement has made it clear that Ferguson is Everywhere.
That’s why we’re using the hashtag #UnitedWeFight — because we lift up and
demand justice not just for Michael Brown, Jr., but for Sandra Bland, for Kayla
Moore, for Yvette Smith, for Kajieme Powell, for Dontre Hamilton, for Taneisha
Anderson, for Vonderrit Myers and for far too many more.
We invite you to join us in St. Louis for the Anniversary Weekend. We have a
huge variety of events planned including mass meetings, rallies, concerts and
protests. If you can’t join us, we ask that you plan solidarity actions in your
own communities. We ask that groups honor Michael Brown Jr by participating
in a four and a half minute National Moment of Silence on Sunday, August 9th at
