Let’s unite our voices to call out the criminalization of black leadership in the Movement for Black Lives in this Twitter Storm. Today and tomorrow, we are rallying via Twitter to campaign for Nancy O’Malley, the Alameda County District Attorney, to #DropTheCharges and restitution against the #BlackFriday14. Twitter Storm’s goal is to:
Position Nancy O’Malley into responding to her complicity in the war on black communities. She has poorly prosecuted the end of Oscar Grant’s Case and has refused to prosecute officers like Miguel Masso who murdered unarmed Alan Blueford.
We want to highlight the unaccountable relationship between law enforcement and the justice system and connect that to the national struggle for Black Lives.
We want to show the injustice of prosecuting our whole group which is a group of all black folks while not prosecuting other protest groups. We want to show that this is a precedent of criminalizing black leadership in the Movement for Black Lives.
Show your support for the #BlackFriday14 with your tweets! Here are a few sample tweets you can use:
