JUSTICE FOR THE PEACE & DIGNITY JOURNEYS 2012!!!! RALLY AT THE OKLAHOMA STATE CAPITOL, SOUTH PLAZA THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11TH, FROM 9:00 AM TO 11:00 AM.
In response to the Kay County Sheriff’s Department’s desecration of a sacred eagle staff and their violation of a Mohawk citizen’s civil and human rights, S.P.I.R.I.T. has confirmed a meeting with the Governor’s Office to discuss Racial Profiling of Indigenous People in Oklahoma for THURSDAY, OCT. 11, AT 10:00 AM. The Peace & Dignity Journeys’ 2012 were our esteemed guests in Oklahoma and were stopped by police three times in four days for “looking suspicious”. This is indicative of the racism people of color encounter in Oklahoma on a regular basis. We must stand together with voices united to show that we are not going to let this racism continue without pointing it out and attempting to make change.
The delegates that will meet with the representative of the Governor’s office are: Richard Whitman, Marilyn Yarbrough, Brenda Golden, Rodney Factor, David Narcomey, Stella Dyer Long, Tafv Tahdinooappiah, Casey Camp-Horinek (invited), Trey Howe (invited) and Anthony Douglas (invited).
Banners, Flags, Signs, noisemakers, hand drums, shells or whatever and traditional dress.
This is a peaceful demonstration, but we need the power of unity to SHOW the state and the nation that racism in the law is WRONG! Violations of Human and Civil Rights because of color or race is WRONG!!
