Renisha McBride was a young, black woman that got killed for being black and asking for help in a white neighborhood. After being in a car accident in a white suburb of Detroit, she went to someone’s door to ask for help and a white man named Theodor Wafer shot her in the face and killed her.

Power to the prisoners!
The Tsega Center stands in Solidarity with the California Prisoner Hunger Strike — more info about our work soon. Here is an update on the Hunger Strike :
Greetings to our supporters and all people of conscience.
We are grateful for your support of our peaceful protest against the state-sanctioned torture that happens not only here at Pelican Bay but in prisons everywhere. We have taken up this hunger strike and work stoppage, which has included 30,000 prisoners in California so far, not only to improve our own conditions but also an act of solidarity with all prisoners and oppressed people around the world.
We encourage everyone to take action to support the strike wherever they live. Sign the petition demanding California Governor stop the torture; plan rolling solidarity fasts if you are able; use every means to spread the word; and participate in non-violent direct action to put pressure on decision-makers.
If it was not for your support, we would have died in 2011. Thank you everyone. We are confident we will prevail.

Callout to attend March at 6:30 pm in People’s Park, in response to the Berkeley Police killing a transwoman in her home last week, and other recent murders at the hands of police:
“Nearly one month later and the Berkeley Police still have not released
information as to the cause of her death, leaving most questions
unanswered. However we do know that there was no commotion or overt
disturbance prior to BPD’s arrival. We know when Berkeley Police arrived
at her home, for the second time in one night, they had police back-up but they did not have a mental health mobile crisis team with them. We know Ms Moore was
alive and not on the verge of death prior to the arrival of the Berkeley Police. We know police regularly murder people of color, gender-variant people, and people with “mental illness.” We also know only one Police Officer in California has been convicted in the death of a civilian and his charges were brought only after massive riots swept Oakland. ”
