Change Now started this petition to Town of Pembroke , Nc

On June 26th college students of all Races (primarily black) came together to stand for the injustices being dealt to African Americans all over the world . They were met with opposition by a specific group of Native Americans. The opposing side came with firearms, Racial slurs and objects (cans which were later hurled at the students). The protesters were approached with knives and informed to "Get back on the boat", etc. There are articles .

Following this a Native young lady planned an March for the July 3 with the intention of Unity. An opportunity for the local black community to see they have their support . 

On July 5th , it was planned for that Unity March to be followed up by another Social Injustice protest. A redo... if you will.

The Town of Pembroke decided they knew a better way . Mass punishment for all . A collective silence .

A State of Emergency was declared on July 1st and any future demonstrations have been deemed "A threat".

This actions continues the cycle . We've been treated less than by a crowd that should understand what separation and isolation feels like for long enough. The Town's decision to shut everyone up ... Well , You decide .
