Hosted by Peoples Power Assembly
Join us at Baltimore PRIDE MARCH for the “Chelsea Manning and Marielle Franco Contingent” in honor of both Chelsea and Marielle. Bring signs and banners.
For those who might not be extremely familiar with Marielle Franco, she is the LGBTQ2S Afro-Brazilian — active in the fight against police brutality who was murdered. It is a way of showing solidarity with the people of Brazil who are suffering under the fascist regime of Bolsonaro.
We want to link our contingent this year to the anti-war struggle in light of Trump’s war threats on Venezuela, Iran, Palestine and around the world. It is important we honor the courage of whistle blower, Chelsea Manning who exposed Pentagon war crimes and who is presently in jail for refusal to testify against Julian Assange.
It is important that there is an anti-war presence at this year’s pride March.
We also want to highlight migrant trans women like Johana Medina Leon who died in ICE custody, Roxana Hernandez, and the scores of Black trans woman who have been murdered.
All groups and individuals are invited to bring signs and to participate. Let us know if you are interested!
Initial endorsers include: Peoples Power Assembly, Black Alliance for Peace, Baltimore chapter, Baltimore Peace Action, Youth Against War & Racism. Please let us know if you would like to endorse. But most importantly show up and March.
On Sunday, June 16, @ the Druid Hill Festival, we will have a joint table for groups to advertise upcoming activities and distribute literature. Look for the “Harriet Tubman Solidarity Center” table.
