Commemorating International Working Women's Day at Othello Station -- March 8, 2017

On Int'l Working Women's Day, 50 people gathered to remember the life of Mai Lin, a casualty of  systemic violence against all women and especially immigrant women of color .  Mai Lin was killed on her way home from work in the Othello neighborhood in 2013.  Also remembered was a trans hair stylist named Dani killed in the same area.

A take back the streets march left flowers at the spot where Mai Lin was found.  We chanted her name alternating with an alert to the neighborhood that these are our streets and will not be surrendered to the violence inherent in the inhumane capitalist system.

Among the groups who organized the event were Got Green and PARISOL.
