WHAT IS BLACK LIVES MATTER?
Black Lives Matter-Birmingham is the Birmingham arm of the international Black Lives Matter Movement. This movement is centered on the issue of Black Lives being murdered and abused with impunity. This movement DEMANDS that justice be served to those guilty of murder or abuse of Blacks, just as any other people. We DEMAND that law enforcement be charged and prosecuted for crimes against citizens just as citizens are charged for crimes against law enforcement. The term “Black Lives Matter“ was coined as a result of the murderer of Trayvon Martin being set free, thereby reinforcing the reality that Black Lives in America are too often seen as valueless. The phrase and hashtag organically evolved into a movement as a result of the numerous cases of police murders with impunity (no consequences) of unarmed Black people around the Nation. A diverse group of local Black Lives Matter supporters organize protest within their perspective cities in solidarity with the International movement, as well as for protest centered on local issues, for the purposes of, but not limited to:
WHAT WE WANT
-An immediate end to police murders of Black people, as well as an immediate end Police violence and misconduct against Blacks people.
-We want all Police equipped with mandatory body cameras that must be on during all encounters with citizens.
-We want all police involved killings and complaints of misconduct investigated independent of the Police department and with total transparency.
-We want an end to the mass incarceration and extortion of Black people thru systematic racism and practices.
-We want an immediate end to; racial profiling; the labeling of predominately Black occupied communities as “crime/drug areas”; and the practice of criminalizing Black people by setting up road blocks in predominately Black occupied communities.
-We want an immediate end to the use of our municipal courts system as extortion rings in the form of grossly high court cost, fines, and other fees.
-We want the 1901 Alabama Constitution that was created to establish white supremacy by law replaced with a new Constitution.
-We want an end to violence and crime in our communities, and we are organizing and developing communities in order to help bring that into reality.
-We want to organize our communities around the concept of an “Village”.
-We want to set up mentoring programs (civilization classes), buyer clubs/co-op businesses, conflict resolution committees, and community parenting advisory boards, to usher in both a new mentality of self-reliance and dignity amongst our people and job and ownership opportunities for ourselves. Mission
Our mission is to organize Black people to Love one another, to know and stand up for their rights, to protect themselves against all injustice and abuse, and to set businesses so as to become a self-sufficient people who are a benefit to ourselves.
