aerdran: (Dante's Hell)
I thought that you might all like an update on the Jena 6 trials in Louisiana. I joined a website for Friends of Justice and get updates on this all, and I'm going to share my recent e-mail. It definitely gives me hope! The more voices that are heard, the better the chances for these kids, so don't be silent! Please, pass it on and continue to pass it on.

A step that gives some encouragement and hope is that the "White Tree" at the school has been cut down and chopped into firewood, as you'll see in the e-mail.

I'm seriously wanting to go to another one of the protests in Jena. I really would love to do that.

You'll note farther down the e-mail that people have e-mailed the governor only to have a staffer reply that the governor can't do anything to help, what with the three branches of government being separate and all. I was one of those who wrote and got that reply, and frankly, it pisses me off. She could, at the very damn least, speak up and say something about the injustice, but she doesn't even seem to be able to do that. It's very disheartening, really.

A step towards justice )

So please please please people, speak out! Pass this story on through your LJs, by word of mouth, e-mail, or however you can. Let's see if we can't force a little justice past the racism and get these kids a fair deal. It means a lot to me, and it should mean a lot to you, too.
