Spoke today with an activist who was in Ferguson & Baltimore.

He said at one point: “We are fighting a state apparatus of power that will stop at nothing. Do the best you can to fight back. That’s all anyone can do.”

We‘ll hit 200 @Lights4Liberty vigils tmrw. It’s not enough.
We need a showing so massive that it shuts down the nation & shows the world that we will not stand for this

that forces the House to act to remove him

that will show every child in detention who looks back on this moment that we fought for their right to live and be free.
Do *the best you can.*

Plan a vigil.

Call your Rep.

Speak the truth ALWAYS.

We haven’t yet come to what could be the worst of this.

I beg you, for the sake of these brave, traumatized human beings in detention, to do the best you can to make sure we don’t.
