Cotton Day Song

***

Every year, people gather in Eureka on August 9th to protest the violence of the police, coverups of truth, abusive acts against houseless people, and the insane and cruel behavior of the state toward those of us experiencing emotional or mental crises. Martin Cotton’s death requires us to examine all of these inhumanities.

We also gather to remember Martin (or Freddy, as he is also known by many), to honor and support his family, and to share and connect in a good way with other survivors of police brutality and intimidation. Martin’s brutal death was witnessed by many houseless people, causing them great trauma and fear. Speaking out against the violence UNITES and EMPOWERS us. We are learning to defend each other and share healing and strength- so many of us, hurt and frightened.

We insist on dignified and compassionate treatment of ALL people.

If you can help with food, signs, candles, or ideas, please get in contact. Participate in this protest of police violence, help create a space of honoring and peace for Martin’s spirit and his family, and tell it like it is at the open mic!
