URGENT CALL TO SOLVE  THE RACIST MURDER  OF Nighisti Mehari Semret - please REBLOG

TRIGGER WARNING VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

oumkalthoum:

This is a serious post so I ask that everyone take the time to read and reblog I would appreciate it very much.

On Tuesday, October 23rd, an Eritrean woman named Nighisti Mehari Semret was murdered in Toronto, Canada. At about 7 a.m she was stalked and stabbed to death by a white male as she walked east through the laneway from Bleecker St. toward Ontario St. The attack took place just 100 metres shy of her home in Cabbagetown.

Her murderer has yet to be caught.

A security camera captured both of their images shown below. Nighisti is seen holding an umbrella in the top two shots, while her murderer is just a few steps behind her. The same footage is shown on video above. Take a good look, try and remember his posture and style of walking.

He is a white male, between 5-foot-10 and 6-foot-2, 150 to 200 pounds with a medium build. Police believe he “lives, frequents and is known to the Cabbagetown and Regent Park area”.

He was wearing a dark, long coat with buttons and a white scarf or garment around his neck, along with a dark hat, pants and shoes.

Officers at 51 Division set up a community vehicle near the scene of the crime, where anyone with information could speak with investigators. If you recognize this man on the street please call the Toronto Police Service @ 416-808-2222. You can also call in anonymously @ 416-222-TIPS (8477), online at www.222tips.com, text TOR and your message to CRIMES (274637), or Leave A Tip on Facebook. My inbox is always open also. Thank you.

TUESDAY APRIL 10th INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PROTEST FOR JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON MARTIN EVEN MORE CRITICAL IN THE WAKE OF SPECIAL PROSECUTOR’S “NO GRAND JURY” ANNOUNCEMENT

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PROTEST FOR JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON MARTIN EVEN MORE CRITICAL IN THE WAKE OF SPECIAL PROSECUTOR’S “NO GRAND JURY” ANNOUNCEMENT

Demand Justice for Trayvon Martin – Tuesday, April 10 – 6 P.M. Union Square NYC

All who are planning to participate in worldwide protests on April 9 and 10 to demand justice for Trayvon Martin should consider recent developments regarding the grand jury as an important reason to double their efforts to make the protests massive and determined.

The announcement by special prosecutor Angela Corey that a grand jury — that had originally been scheduled to take up Trayvon Martin’s case on April 10 but is now not going to do that — can only be viewed as confusing at best and troubling at worse.

This is not the news that people across the country, indeed across the world, had been waiting to hear. Justice demands an arrest for murder, not another excuse for a delay — which is what the special prosecutor’s announcement amounts to.

Justice delayed is justice denied. Six weeks have come and gone since Trayvon was murdered for being Black and young. The prosecutors and police have had plenty of time to reverse their clumsy efforts to sweep this murder under the rug and do what every rational freedom-loving person demands: arrest George Zimmerman.

Yet, as of this date, the only people who have been arrested in the Trayvon Martin case, have been six students protesting for justice by blocking the doors of the Sanford, Fla. police station.

The delay of justice is unacceptable. The unprecedented mass movement for Trayvon that has blossomed over the last three weeks, can only view more delays as a sign that the powers that be are not yet getting the message: No justice, No peace.

Moreover, if the delay of justice continues, or if the special prosecutor announces that Mr. Zimmerman will not be arrested and charged with murder, the incredible protest that have already taken place in reaction to Trayvon’s murder, will pale in comparison to the mass outrage that such an announcement would provoke.
