Trayvon Martin: March for Justice Chicago
so last night it was raining, hard, thunderstorms and all. i was cozy in my bed sipping my hot coco (figuratively) on twitter, my primary news source (follow me @afr0disiak) and i see the Occupy chicago posted a picture about a protest that streches 3 city blocks marching up and down Michigan Ave for Trayvon Martin. Ive seen the Occupy protest marches and they are usually a few 100-200 people at most enough of a crowd to make a impact. but 3 CITY BLOCKS? never heard of it. so i put some clothes on and rushed out the door to be apart of course. and it is pouring rain people. Long story short i get to state in Lake and follow the police lights, blocked streets and yelling, "NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE!" It was exciting. and it is going on again today same place! rain, sun, or shine, people will stand up for what they believe in. Law and rules do not apply when a human feels truely deceived or wronged. The government is decieving us, the media is deceiving us. It may not be as apparent as Trayvon Martins case, which is truely the worst kind of injustice taking another life, but the government is lying and putting a mask over our eyes. Last night was a grat example of the power
we as a united people can do imagine if all of chicago, or every person in every city ould care enough to come out and spend and hour or two, standing up for injustice. woman did it for the right to vote, civil right activist did it too. now its our turn. united we stand.
-EDIT: for the haters
people are on some serious bs with saying, "people in your own neighborhood get killed"
EXACTLY, thats what the trayvon protest was about he is a represntative of that type of injustice. so dont come at me with some bs about how you can try to change the world but the world is gonna stay the same. its bigger than that its bigger than ur ignorant thinking, it not about trayvon Martin specifically its about all people killed and did not recieve the justice they deserve!
