UCSB Community: "Hands Up, Walk Out" gathering

(Per the "Ferguson National Response: Hands Up, Walk Out" Facebook page):


"In the wake of events in the last weeks, including the non-indictment in the killing of Mike Brown and the senseless killings of Akai Gurley in New York and 12-year-old Tamir Rice in Cleveland, our communities are hurting and justifiably angered. What gives us hope in this moment of pain and anguish is the thousands of people who have poured into the streets of America to demand change.

From the #ShutItDown actions that have blocked major highways and intersections to the #BlackoutBlackFriday protests,the message is clear: No more business as usual. We can no longer do what we have always done and cooperate with a system that does not respect Black Lives. We will only get the change we want if we disrupt the daily order and insist that Black Lives Matter.

On Monday, Dec 1st people around the country will be walking out of their schools and places of work in solidarity with Ferguson communities across the country effected by police violence."

Join the UCSB on Monday at 10:01 AM in front of Storke Tower as we Walk Out with our Hands up in solidarity with Ferguson!"
