White Silence = Violence
A small group of dedicated activists held a Human Rights Day demonstration outside the Oakland Federal Building yesterday. Chanting "White Silence = Violence," the protesters walked peacefully up to an entrance. The Federal Protective Service which guards the place inconvenienced employees arriving for work by locking doors wherever demonstrators came near.
Though witness to a too often ignored UN document brought them here, the killing of Mike Brown, Eric Garner and so many other Black people inspired the action.
