July 16, 2013 will mark the two year anniversary of the murder of Kenneth Harding Jr. who was murdered by San Francisco police at the age of nineteen for allegedly failing to pay a $2.00 transit fare. While the family still awaits information for an investigation of the police; the Kenneth Harding Jr. Foundation would like to call upon everyone to come together in solidarity to support a transit shut down against the San Francisco Municipal Transit.
MUNI Transit has to take responsibility for their role in this horrific murder. They request for police officers to conduct fare inspections within the impoverished areas and upon the “impoverished” youth and people of color. We want free transit for all youth; no one should have to worry about losing their life for not having transit fare, and/or not paying transit fare. No one should be racially profiled, stopped and frisked, and/or have their rights violated to determine if they have paid transit fare. Everyone should have the right to ride transit without fear of losing their life.
We are asking for full support and cooperation from all unions especially transit, organizations, movements, and our community members. We want mothers who have lost their children to step up and speak out with us on this day and allow your cries to be heard. We want to affect the city of San Francisco’s economic system in order to allow our voices to be heard. We are asking those who stand in solidarity against police brutality and those who would like to help organize and/or endorse the shutdown to contact the Kenneth Harding Jr. Foundation at (415) 505-6331 or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are all still Kenneth Harding Jr., Alan Blueford, Derrick Gaines, Oscar Grant, Trayvon Martin, Rhamarley Graham, Raheim Brown, James Rivera Jr., Gary King Jr., Mario Romero, Ernest Duenez Jr., and so many more…
