16th St & Valencia St
San Francisco, CA 94103
Update 4/29 (via email) :
This morning when the #Frisco5 were asked how they were feeling they replied: “ Let the press know that we are tired and bodies are getting weaker and that yesterday took a lot out of the five strikers – thousands of people stopping by to share their love to two dozen press outlets. They will be resting for much part of the day to conserve energy and sustain the through this journey that may continue for many more days.”
They are on day nine of their hunger strike and city hall seems to be ready to let them starve to death.
The mayor’s tone deaf attitude towards citizens who have put their life on the line, to stop police terror , has enraged the community. Members of the community have started a petition to remove Chief Suhr as Chief of Police.
Tomorrow they will hold a rally in front of Mission Police Station in support of the strikers.
Enough is Enough!!! The chief must go.
The crowd is chanting the names of black and brown people gunned down by SFPD (self-appointed judge, jury and executioner), for as many bullets the police shot into their bodies. This video also shows The People’s demand for a full community meeting (after the most recent killing of Luis Gongora) casually denied. Hunger Srriker Edwin confronts the Captain about the murdering of our brothers and gets a smirk. We will win. The word is out now. Join us at 17th and Valencia. Also Justice 4 Mario woods coalition meeting tonight at 350 Rhode Island 6 pm. We will take this hunger strike to focus our power.
Hunger strike is growing. Please come down to Mission Police Station at Valencia and 17th in solidarity. Spread the word to friends in other cities and states: this hunger strike is because racist SFPD continues to murder black and brown people in the streets in ethnic cleansing. We have lost members of our community. This is a national emergency. Our power comes from love and from the word being spread: along with it: OUTRAGE.
Hunger Strike at Mission Police Station until Greg Suhr is fired as Chief of the murdering SFPD
Hunger strike at Mission Police Station today, tonight, tomorrow until Greg Suhr is fired as Chief of the murdering SFPD. Join us in solidarity: on Valencia between 16th and 17th. The hunger strikers are dead serious. And they need you.
“This is not a publicity stunt by any means of the imagination. We have real people with real families, with institutions that are being run, pre schools and careers. This is legitimately our last option.”
Stay tuned for an announcement of OccupyForum this Monday night at Global Exchange on Strategizing: How Do We Keep the Police from Killing People?
