We Are Boston Rally
Mon July 5 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
This is being organized to stand up and speak out against Boston’s legacy of white supremacy, misrepresentation of Boston’s many communities in city council and other political institutions, local Native American/ Native Indian suffering, and to promote liberty for all, among other issues in partnership with community organizations in Boston dedicated to doing the work.
We need to get these bad politicians and organizations out of power. We need Bostonians to join these conversations. We need Bostonians to acknowledge the power in their homes. We need you. These issues are ALL violations of our liberty, these issues ALL harm us. It’s time for us to take a unified stand against the oppressors!
1.) An end to state and city abuses of Boston’s homeless and addicted populace. Specifically, those impacted by methadone mile abuses. Starting with cleaning the slate of local elected officials this coming cycle, opening Long Island by repairing the Long Island bridge for better rehabilitation programming.
2.) An official end to the bail bond system, incentives for arrests, and bringing forth police accountability. In doing so we are calling for #JusticeForBrendaJames, an end to qualified immunity, and a reallocation of taxpayer funds from policing operations to community-facing advocacy initiatives.
3.) An end to Boston’s cooperation with ICE, specifically within its educational institutions.
4.) Acknowledging and addressing Boston’s legacy of slavery, starting by changing the name of Fanueil Hall. Peter Faneuil was a slave trader, Faneuil Hall is a former slave trading post.
5.) We must foster greater financial equity in Massachusetts by reducing the number of occupational licenses. People should not need licenses to feed the homeless, people should not need licenses to sell eyelashes. It makes no sense that a hairdresser is forced to go through more training than a police officer.
6.) To the people and institutions of Boston, WE DEMAND that there be cooperation between ALL of us dedicated to change in Boston. There is no need for us to stand divided in such a small city due to drama and political favors.
