December 14, 2014-Kalamazoo, MI
Starting at 12:00 P.M EST today, National Black Day of Silence will begin and end on December 15 at 12:00 P.M EST.
Organizers from Ferguson, MO (Mike Brown) are inviting individuals, community organizations and activists to join their energies and efforts for a nationwide moment of silence to remember those murdered by gun violence, protesting the unregulated standard officers have, particularly white policers shooting unarmed black men and racial profiling.
There have been many cases before Mike Brown or Trayvon Martin. Every 28 hours a black life is lost to police violence, security or vigilantes. Current social media stories and pictures reflect citizens from many communities across the nation and the world have had enough of government bullying, lack of equality and democracy.
