On Monday, March 30th Jasmine Richards, Co-founder of #Blacklivesmatter was arrested by Pasadena, Ca police. The arresting charge was initially failure to appear, which basically means Ms. Richards missed her court date. Later on Jasmine Richards was charged with making “terrorist threats”, trespassing, petty theft, and evading police. We know these trumped up charges are an attempt by the police to dissuade the organizers and community in Pasadena, Ca to continue organizing for justice for Kendrec MceDede. Jasmine had just been involved with organizing a peaceful demonstration held on the anniversary of the death of Kendrec McDade.

Kendrec McDade was 19 years old, the same age as Tony Robinson when he was

murdered. He was brutally killed by Pasadena police on March 24th, 2012. Jasmine and Blacklivesmatter Pasadena organizers have been putting pressure on the City to hold the shooting officers, Newlen and Griffin accountable. The demonstration that happened 6 days prior to Jasmine Richards arrest was an escalation to get more answers for the mother of Kendrec surrounding the death of her son.

We know that more and more Black organizers fighting for Freedom will continue to be targeted by federal and local police. Jasmine Richards is a political prisoner. Her imprisonment is a “cut off the head” tactic to end the movement for Black liberation. YGB stands in solidarity with Blacklivesmatter Pasadena in demanding she be released. We will not stop fighting for Black liberation! We will continue in the name of our fallen and the leaders that have been taken from us. In Madison, WI, YGB will continue to demand justice for Tony Robinson and for Black people everywhere. The revolution will not be encaged! ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE!
