Philly: Bash Back! Disrupts Traffic in Response to Trans Killings

November 22, 2008, 4:09 pm

In response to the recent murder of of Duanna Johnson, Philly’s
incompetence in trying Erika Keels murderer, and to show our love to all
the Trans Folks who lost their lives to hate. Bash Back Philly took to the
streets in our first action to mark the beginning of our existence.

As people left the hollow towers that cover our world in shadows to go
home to another day of gray. We here at Bash Back Philly had a different
plan for them. Slowly block by block we reclaimed the streets, blocking
traffic to leave the pink body out line of our murdered family and the
words “Stop Trans Murder” passing flyers to raise awareness to the most
recent of our people’s murders and the lack of respect our city shows for
us. As the snow and rain beat down on our backs we continued our Reclaim
The Streets avoiding potential arrests and angry cars trying to run us
down. The People out in the streets were with us though which was
inspiration enough to continue our action. Passerby’s, Wage Slaves, and of
course upper class gays were all their learning that our queerstory, is
not all about San Francisco. That we are everywhere and we will not lose
our lives and family without a fight.
