      Dear YouthMediaCouncil Staff.

      Our heartfelt congratulations for supporting Alameda Southeast  Asian Youth and their families in their sruggle against criminalization !

      We forwarded your announcement of the protest on Nov 27, which was forwarded to us tonight by Mary Ratcliff, editor of the SF Bayview Newspaper, to all our list serves.

      Last year, among 82 other wesites 4 Justice set up and moderated ny our foundation, we launched
      Justice4BigO, in love and support of Big O Lefiti's family.
      Big O, a Samoan Youth Counselor, was murdered by SFPD in June 06, only 2 weeks after they murdered Asa Sullivan


      Last website for Justice we set up last month:
      As many of you surely know, Brother Gary Jr. AKA G_Money, 20 yr. AfriKan American innocent, unarmed Youth, was beaten, tortured, Tasered 7 times then shot in the back by OPD officer Patrick Gonzalez.

      Please let us know if there is anything we can do to contribute in supporting these 2 Asian boys and their families.
      We are available to set up a petition online at no cost.

      In Unity & Respect
      mesha Monge-Irizarry.
