#Malcolm50 #BlackFutureMonth
Sat. Feb. 21st at 11:00am in Balboa Park 

Sat. Feb. 21st is the 50th ANNIVERSARY OF MALCOLM X’s ASSASSINATION 

This event is in coordination with the national #FergusonResponse and we will honor the life of Malcolm X and the movements he inspired by taking direct action on the 50th anniversary of his death.

We will organize creative, disruptive, direct actions in your community.

Channel the clarity of “by any means necessary” and his desire to “put the U.S. on trial” for its human rights crimes against black people as you plan and organize actions.

Nationwide vigil for Tamir Rice & All wrongfully killed by law enforcement
Sun. Feb. 22nd at  6pm at the City Heights Performance Annex 
3795 Fairmount Ave, San Diego, California 92105

United Against Police Terror - San Diego and Coalition Against Police Violence in solidarity with #4MileMarch's call of action, will be hosting a candlelight vigil to draw attention to the wrongful killings of our youth by Law Enforcement, To show support for Families of Police Victims, and To Demand Accountability of all Law Enforcement.

The nationwide 4 Mile March peaceful protests around the country and in Canada on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day gained national attention in demanding police reform and speaking for those who no longer have a voice.

Candlelight vigils are seen as a nonviolent way to raise awareness of a cause and to motivate change. While Tamir's death received some national attention the case remains open and many citizens are not aware of the circumstances surrounding his death. Many have become desensitized to deaths of unarmed, innocent individuals and apathetic to injustice.

On February 22, 2015, exactly 3 months after Tamir was shot, we will hold a national vigil. We ask that you help bring awareness of the epidemic of deaths caused by law enforcement. Bring awareness to the pending case of Tamir Rice and demand that justice is served and police reform be made a reality.

It is important to keep pushing for justice in Tamir's case. Unjust rulings have been made on the cases of little 7 year old Aiyana Stanley-Jones, shot in the head by a police officer while she was sleeping and 14 year old Andy Lopez, who was also shot by police for carrying a toy gun. His case failed to get national attention.

We mourn the loss of these children and it is time to demand justice and law enforcement reform. Too many officers blatantly lie to cover up taking an innocent life and are still allowed in our streets to "protect and serve". 

It is time for America to WAKE UP!

We ask for the nation to come together - white, black, latino, whatever race you are, and take a stand that says it is not acceptable for police to to kill a 12 year old child. Tell the world that an officer who is deemed emotionally unfit to serve should not be allowed on our streets. Unite as one to light a candle for Tamir and the many children, men and women wrongfully killed by police in America.

Tell the world that Tamir could be your son, your brother, your friend.
