BURNING IN LOVE AND RIOT

aboutNext pageArchive

"Looking into relationships in a broad sense, be it personal, political, religious or social, I see the essential need to delve into these relationships and research where we have gone wrong, to the dark, yet true side of life, to find answers in order to progress, that is, if we allow ourselves. It is in my work that I have all the space and freedom to compliment this, to ask questions, offer suggestions and ask for forgiveness… all I want is to groom and nurture the love and respect which seems to have frozen amongst ourselves and to free the massive tension that holds us."

Trans and Queer Activists Beaten and Arrested During SF Pride

San Francisco’s Mission District – At least six people were arrested on Saturday night after a protest against a prison-themed Kink.com party.

The six included a National Lawyers’ Guild Legal Observer; several protesters were clubbed and beaten to the ground after a protest numbering several hundred marched to the Armory at 14th and Mission Streets in the Mission District, from a 10 p.m. gathering at the 16th Street BART Station. Two of the arrestees have been released; four are still in custody as of 4 a.m. Sunday morning.

The promoters of the Kink.com party mockingly invited people to “get arrested” and enjoy “solitary confinement, showers, jailbreak, love and lust, freedom and confinement.” The protesters argued that the party was a crude event that profited off of the brutality suffered by trans women and gender nonconforming people of color, who are so often funneled into the prison industrial complex.

“This is a travesty—on the anniversary of the famed Stonewall Rebellion, where trans and queer people rose up against police brutality, that six people would be arrested for protesting an SF Pride-sanctioned party that celebrated state violence and prison rape,” said Mary Lou Ratchet, a Gay Shame (www.gayshamesf.org) representative. The march was organized by Gay Shame and LAGAI (www.lagai.org).

Update: 3 people are still being held in custody by the SF Sheriff’s Office facing wrongful felony charges. PLEASE, PLEASE sign this petition demanding their release.

As of Monday morning they are still in jail. PLEASE call the SF DA’s office to demand their release—it only takes a minute, and the more people call, the more pressure is put on the DA to let our friends go!

Please call in to either
(415) 553-1751
(415) 553-1754

BASIC ASK:

"We demand that the DA’s office drop the charges and immediately release Rebecca Luisa Ruiz-Lichter, Prisca Carpenter and Sarai Robles-Mendez.”

*RAGE*
Please do this if you can!

Editing to add: as of my signing it, the petition needs ONE MORE SIGNATURE come on we can do that at least, surely.
