In Defense of Black Bodies #PhillyDIEin
Wednesday, Dec. 3rd, 4pm
30th Street Station in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
We ask that people arrive at 30th Street Station between 3:45 - 4 pm and mill around as if there for regular purposes. As it approaches 4:15 we will begin to gather in the Main Concourse (INSIDE THE STATION in the main corridor by the wooden benches/Amtrak.)
At 4:15, we will drop to the ground.
*We ask that non-Black POC and white allies sit in solidarity during this time but not lay down as the dead.*
We will "die" for 4 minutes and 30 seconds, to honor Mike brown, and recognize the 4 hours and 30 minutes his body was left on the ground.
After the die-in, we will be marching from 30th Street Station to City Hall.
Please bring signs, friends, family, and any other form of support. We are trying to disrupt the flow of traffic in the station and downtown, and make our voices heard.
SHARE THIS EVENT. INVITE YOUR FRIENDS. MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD.
For any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to shoot us an email!
