Trans Woman Murdered in Oakland, Emergency Demo Tonight at 8pm, 13th and Franklin PLEASE REPOST/SIGNAL BOOST



from Oakland Occupy Patriarchy:

“Brandi, a transwoman, was murdered last night, shot at 12th and Franklin in Downtown Oakland after an altercation with a man who became enraged and shot her when he realized she was trans. An amazing #oo comrade tried to keep her alive with training learned from the People’s Community Medics, but the cops walked away and the ambulance came too late”

Everyone please spread this as widely as possible and please show out tonight to stand up against transphobic violence!

No news stories yet on the situation but will try and keep this updated with info

jesus this is fucking scary- a night before this a friend and i were out on 17th and some dude started fallowing us and screaming at us cuz he read us as a lez couple then relized i was a trans woman and started threatening rape and that he was going to kill me and just a day before a friend of my barely escaped getting beaten or worse by a group of dudes only cuz they were able to convince them that they were a cis woman and not a trans woman/faggot. It could have been any of us- were all just a moment away from encountering the wrong man/men on the wrong street. Fuck this world, kill men, die cis scum. 

No words. Stay safe, sisters.
