Here’s some cross-movement organizing for you. A few of us got together yesterday and came up with this sign, then I stopped by the MEChA de ASU meeting and told them what was up, so a bunch of them signed to support the youth and church groups, mainly, working to free the Scott Sisters.
We know this is all about civil rights and justice, not just about seeking mercy.
I’ll be down at the Palestinian Wall memorial on Hayden Lawn today seeking support, too.
Hang in there, Mrs. Rasco. All of you. We’ve still got a long haul ahead, I think, but there’s a lot of love and outrage stirring on the Scott Sisters behalf. This is America, after all. This kind of thing should be fixed when it happens here, not re-written for history books…who are we, if we can’t be real?
Good for the media covering this now, by the way – the first ones show the most courage.
This is a close-up of the insert to Nina Simone’s Anthology. Great tunes. Seemed appropriate to tack on there, since I’ve been listening a lot.
Still recruiting more Mississippi Prison Watchers!
