On July 31, our friend and comrade Tsega Tsegay was beaten to death by her husband. Tsega was a constant and unforgettable presence at the Occupy Oakland encampment – an unceasingly loving person, always laughing, smiling and dancing. She never missed an opportunity to tell someone she loved them, or to get up and dance on stage during GA. We are furious at the way she was taken from us, and heartbroken that she is no longer in our lives.
Her sister is currently trying to raise money to send her body back to Ethiopia, where their parents are living. Let’s help return the love Tsega gave us, and support them in their time of need.
Rest in Power, Tsega. You will always be in our hearts. May your memory give us strength as we continue the struggle you set out on to change this crazy, messed up world.
