Please sign the following online petition:
To Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, City Council and State’s Attorney:
Baltimore’s youth are not thugs! We are calling on the Mayor, the City Council and the State Attorney’s office to drop all charges. We call for full amnesty, along with continuing our demand for justice for Freddie Grey.
In the past several weeks, close to 500 people have been arrested. Some have been brutally beaten in front of television cameras, pepper-sprayed and held in central booking and at a nearby juvenile facility without due process.
Those arrested were denied their right to see a court commissioner within the 24-hour period previously required. Those arrested also include journalists, medics and legal observers.
Allen Bullock, whose parents urged him to turn himself in after he was pictured on a news media photo for allegedly breaking a police cruiser’s windows, is facing life in prison. His bail was set at $500,000, which is more than three times higher than the $150,000 bail set for the officers charged with the murder of Freddie Grey. How can city officials equate property damage with the life of a human being?
The youth of Baltimore need our support. We demand: Drop all charges and grant full amnesty; the people of Baltimore, especially the youth, need full employment at a livable wage; decent education and housing, not jails, racism and police terror.
Please donate now! Funds continue to be needed to help pay for flyers, posters, picket signs and other supplies. Every donation, regardless of size, helps.
