L’homme abattu par le SPVM était en détresse psychologique
Dérangeant pour le voisinage, Pierre Coriolan devait être expulsé samedi de son logement
«Pierre Coriolan, 58, was killed by the police this past Tuesday, and our hearts go out to his loved ones and family. He was in crisis because he was being evicted from his home. Witnesses say that he was lying on the ground when he was shot. We gather to honour his life, and all the Black lives that have been taken too soon by the SPVM including Bony Jean Pierre, Quilem Registre and Anthony Griffin.
We are coming together to denounce the police killings of black community members, and to say that police should have no role in responding to mental health crises. Alain Magloire, Abdirahman Abdi and Andrew Loku are only a few of the black men who have been killed by police who were responding to a mental health crisis.
We gather, too, to denounce the larger anti-black racism found in Montreal.
By saying that, since its Pride Month, we recognize that its important to give a voice to the Black trans community and to acknowledge the genocide against black queer women, specifically black trans women.
DRESS CODE: All Black Everything
Please respect the Dress Code as we are in mourning and facing so much Anti-Black racism in Quebec, especially in the past few days.
Rest in Power Pierre Coriolan .
Our bodies are NOT weapons, NOT another Black life !
