Re: “Oakland Activist Cat Brooks on President Trump: 'My Revolutionary Prayer'

I was right up there at the sound truck when we were flashed bombed and tear gassed without any provocation. There was a 9 year old boy with his mother to the left of me and a person in a wheel chair to the right of me. The tear gassing and flash bombx created a very dangerous situation for the safety of all of us as there was no where to go. I am so thankful you kept everyone calm and continued the protest. But what realky opened my eyes is that the police and media lied about this incident saying everything from bottles were th thrown to molitive cocktails. I was 2 or 3 3 people back from the line of police, none of that h as poened as you were there.

I was slso at the rally on Thursday which opened up my knowledge of so many diverse groups but I inspired me by the love and the joint effort of all these people coming together for to protect those under attact and fight what is headed our way.

I am getting involved, sharing information, contacting government officials, and trying to find an activist organization that could use my help.

My eyes are open to we what I didn't see happening and am truly scared of what is happening and where we are headed.

Cat, I love the energy, passion, knowledge and inspiration you give. You are my hero and I feel more empowered and feel the inspiration to fight and much initiated by you those first 2 days. I am not going to crawl in a ball and cry, or live in denial, I am going to strive to protect others and fight for our rights and justice.

Cat
