A motion for a second “stand your ground” hearing for Marissa Alexander has been denied, in a ruling made Friday by Judge James Daniel.
Marissa Alexander has been denied a new Stand Your Ground hearing. Yet again, Florida refuses to free this survivor of domestic violence, fails to support women’s right to self defense, and continues to support anti-black racism in the judicial system. Her new trial is still scheduled to begin Dec 8th.
Marissa needs your voices and support more than ever!
Standing Our Ground Week of Action is still on!
July 25-Aug 1: LET’S TAKE ACTION!
This is so fucked up.
The death of Staten Island father of six Eric Garner is rocking New York City. His disturbing confrontation with at least five NYPD officers, captured on video, shows how quickly police turn to brutal force.
The video shows Garner in a chokehold, gasping “I can’t breathe” as police hold him down. After the footage was recorded, he was pronounced dead. Since that July 17 incident, the community has been up in arms, calling the NYPD racist and demanding change.
