Subject: MARCH FOR JUSTICE FOR KOLLIN ELDERTS FRIDAY @ 6PM!
State Department Federal Agent is guilty of MURDER!
The Judge in the trial of Christopher Deedy just announced that the jury has ended deliberations. Deedy is ACQUITTED of murder but there's a hung jury on the charges of manslaughter, two degrees of assault, and intention to use a deadly weapon. She will make a ruling on August 29th as to how the case will proceed. This could result in a 3rd trial on the charges of manslaughter or the assaults, or dismissal. The defense is already arguing that a 3rd trial would be too expensive.
This is an outrage! It is urgent that we continue to demand Justice for Kollin Elderts and that Agent Deedy be charged with murder! It is now up to US!
Come to a March for justice for Kollin Elderts on Friday evening. Assemble at the Honolulu Zoo at 6pm with your signs and your noisemakers. The march will go down Kalakaua Avenue where thousands will witness our rage demand for justice. Many will be tourists coming to "paradise" to escape, but tomorrow night they must confront the reality. Whether in New York City, Ferguson, or Honolulu, Black and Brown youth are being targeted by the murderous enforcers of this racist system! This cannot be allowed to continue! We say: NO MORE!
Our hearts go out to the family of Kollin Elderts. The family has experienced the sorrow and pain of having their beloved son, brother, nephew and cousin killed by an agent of this racist system. They have endured the lies that have been told about Kollin. They have suffered through two trials - forced to relieve the murder again and again while hoping that there will finally be justice. Today was a tremendous disappointment for them. We don't know if any of the family will be attending tomorrow evenings march but they have voiced their support for the action.
