Celebration of Andy Lopez' 14th Birthday

Andy's 14th birthday was on June 2nd and the march and celebration were June 7th.

Young people were abundant at the birthday celebration. Some who appeared to be not much more than elementary school aged could be seen helping organize the proceedings, with many guardians simply watching and playing more of a background role at the demonstration.

Today, I just keep thinking about Andy Lopez and his family. I am thinking about how young Andy Lopez never lived to see his 14th birthday, thanks to murdering Deputy Erick Gelhaus .

June 2nd is the 14th Birthday of Andy Lopez and the work for justice continues! Birthday party and more!

"All governments lie." - Daniel Ellsberg

Half a block from the State Department, a bus shelter is now displaying a billboard nearly six feet tall with a plea from Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg to “tell the truth with documents that reveal lies or crimes or internal projections of costs and dangers.” On the sign, Ellsberg also urges: “Don’t wait until a new war has started, don’t wait until thousands more have died… You might save a war’s worth of lives.”
