And I have been to Kansas City before throughout my travels here on planet earth.  And this time it was for a funeral that I visited that 8-Square-Mile “Murder Factory” zip code of 64130 that I saw the People’s City at Occupy City Hall Kansas City from the bus from the airport that I find myself blogging about.  And in the midst of a panicdemic and going to that funeral and listening to His Eye Is On The Sparrow and Stairway to Heaven at the service, it was also an attempt to vend those Black Lives Matter necklaces, magnets, key chains & pins and display those your thoughts on black lives matter banners at J.C. Nichols Fountain .  There has been protests at the Country Club Plaza to rename Kansas City’s J.C. Nichols Memorial Fountain. J.C. Nichols use of “restrictive covenants”—barring African-Americans from buying or renting homes in his subdivisions are to blame for the stark segregation and racial divides that still exist throughout the metro.  

And everyone was at the Kansas City Chiefs game, a drum circle was going on,  a barbecue was later and a Blue Lives Matter rally was on the way that day at Occupy City Hall Kansas City.  The great reset, new world order temperature checks required for entry. And the flyer that I picked up from The People’s City reception table read:

“KC: The city of killer cops

The people demand justice

Why we’re occupying city hall

On September 30th, Deja Stallings, at nine months pregnant, was assaulted by KCPD, the video that surfaced is one in a long line of brutal police attacks on black and brown people in Kansas City

We are occupying because we have had enough. Deja’s case is not an isolated event; black women like Deja are some of the most marginalized and endangered people in our society and shouldn’t have to live in fear of being attacked by the police.

We know that abolition is the path to transformative justice. We fight to live in a world where black lives are truly affirmed, protected and liberated.

The Demands

1. Fire Chief Rick Smith and officer Newton who brutalized Deja.

2, Fire all officers who have killed black victims in Kansas City

3. Divest 50% from KCPD’s $273 million budget

4. Reinvest the KCPD budget into resources that support the black community including education, healthcare and housing.

How Can You Help?

– Occupying with us outside of city hall

– Bring the occupiers supplies such as food, water & blankets

– Donate to local groups like Black Rainbow and the KC Community Bail Fund

– Email BOPC@kcpd.org & demand they vote to terminate Rick Smith

– SPREAD THE WORD
