The Wall of Moms link....these moms are fierce!

#BlackLivesMatter
WALL OF MOMS

CALLING ALL MOMS - We meet again at the Salmon Street Fountain on the waterfront at 8:50pm. We will walk over together at 9pm to the Justice Center. Wear yellow and protective gear if you can. Due to the escalated violence by the Feds, please know your participation may result in arrest, tear gassing, and being shot by rubber bullets or even live ammunition once assembled in front of the justice center. Please take every safety precaution available. Thank you to all you brave mamas!

We listen to Black leaders. We are here to follow their direction, behind the scenes and at the justice center. We go where they tell us.
Our goal is to push the media to turn the focus where it belongs: Black leaders.
We will use our white bodies, not our white voices.
Bevís vision was that we moms would take some physical hits in hopes our Black and Brown kids, friends, neighbors, and loved ones will be spared some pain. To summon that mom warrior spirit to protect our kids-- ALL our kids. To let the Feds/cops hit, gas, shoot us first. Not to be the voice of the movement.
A lot of us havenít put our bodies in harms way like this. Itís really scary and awful. But itís whatís been happening to Black and Brown bodies for years.

Letís help each other do this. And thank you all for your grace and courage.

1. And they deserve all our support

They have always stressed why they are there -- they are purposely (and peacefully) putting themselves in harm's way to spare the bodies of the black leaders so they can use their voices.

2. Why can't they stay just far enough away from the Justice Center to render these idiots impotent?

I really do not understand the insistence on going directly to the one place the feds are authorized to intervene. Stay just far enough away; gets the point across, peaceful protest, but should not engage the goon squad or they could be arrested.

Unless I'm missing the point so if someone can enlighten me as to why it's necessary to continue at the Justice Center, I'm all ears.
