LA activists Shalana Little and Xaime Casillas were wrongfully arrested last year while out on the streets protesting police brutality.
Over 400 people have been arrested in recent months during these mass protests in solidarity with Ferguson. Many charges were dropped, but Shalana and Xaime are facing some of the most heightened criminal charges. Xaime and Shalana were both mistreated in jail, wrongfully arrested, and now stand trial wrongfully accused of crimes they did not commit — all while the true criminals, killer cops, continue to run free. Shalana is going to trial On June 29 and Xaime is already on trial today, May 19. They need all the help they can get to have the best legal defense possible. Their contributions to the Black Lives Matter movement in LA have been indispensable, and it would be an outrage if they were convicted for their commitment to justice.
This is one important way to be in solidarity against racism. If you have resources to spare, we need your help. If you can skip a coffee or two this week and donate $5, this or any amount will be seriously appreciated. If you can afford to chip in more, please do so. Please donate whatever you can!If there is any leftover money the remainer will be used for future legal defense funds. Thank you for your love, trust, and generosity. Free Shalana And Xaime!
