Fourth of July Protest

(from Tri-Cities Black Lives Matter)

Saturday, July 4, 11 AM to 3 PM

HAPO Community Stage, John Dam Plaza

800 Jadwin Ave., Richland, WA

By popular demand the community has requested a 4th of July protest in Richland.

Being that this a historical day to celebrate a false idea of American Independence we feel it is necessary exercise our freedom to take a stand in solidarity with one another as a movement.

We recognize the power of our united voices as a direct threat to those in our society that resist the defacing of symbols deeply rooted in racial inequality.

We are visible. We will not tolerate being threatened. We will stand tall with our “little signs” against racism and declare until black lives matter we can’t celebrate the reality that freedom is designated to a select few.

We are not 2nd class citizens! Our lives matter! We celebrate the idea of real Independence for all Americans Junteenth June 19, 1865 and not the white washed narrative of July 4, 1776.
