The Frontera Water Protection Alliance stand behind Patricia Okoumou and her actions of peaceful non-violent direct action for the protection and release of children and youth from detention centers. Patricia Okoumou should not be charged with any federal charges or misdemeanors, as protesting is a constitutional right. She did not, in any form, act with violence, nor vandalize, threaten, or destroy anything in her any of her actions.
We must support and protect human rights defenders!
Refuse Fascism NYC endorses the Valentine’s Day action at the border.
Thank you Patricia for your generous and courageous action. We cannot sit back and watch children being separated from their families, caged and abused.
We stand for the future with green energy we stand for the children we stand with Patricia
We stood against a billion dollar company and injustice we stood for the water and we stand with Patricia who stand for the children
We are a political action group in Northern Manhattan and we stand with Patricia Okoumou in her passionate commitment to end the separation of children and families. This policy is cruel and damaging to innocent children and families legally seeking asylum. Family separation is morally reprehensible and the true crime.
We have produced photo and video content promoting Patricia's cause. While others are silent, she stands up for the voiceless. We photographed Patricia in clothing painted with statements: "Seeking Asylum is not a Crime" "I care" "Return the Children" It was honor to work with a real hero and a true professional. Patricia has made real sacrifices to bring attention to issues that should concern all of us. Please consider making a donation today.
I support Patricia and her efforts to bring awareness to the children in the bondage by the United States at the border to stand up against injustice we must Stand
Thanks for your bravery.
In solidarity with your campaign for the children
In the past, Patricia has done the ultimate by putting her body on the line for immigrant children. I endorse her current action because I know she is serious about her work and I believe she can get results.
Patricia Okoumou's bravery in the face of this barbarous, autocratic, proto-fascist trump/pence regime to stand up for asylum-seeking children and families driven from their home countries by warlords and drug gangs (who are propped up by the illegal drug marketplace here in the USA and are armed with guns manufactured in and sold to them from USA) is a powerful testament to the need for US citizens to hold our government and elected officials to account for their unconstitutional and immoral actions. Our government, at the direction of donald j. trump and kirstjen nielsen, has been kidnapping children and losing them in its bureaucracy for years. It is also creation horrific environments in detention facilities in which children are being beaten, psychologically tortured, and raped BY AGENTS OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT. It is no surprise that many sheep-like native born Americans choose to pull the wool over their eyes and avoid facing the hideous cruelty being committed IN THEIR NAMES against people indigenous to this hemisphere. Perhaps that is why we need Patricia Okoumou the most: to force us to open our eyes to what the United States of America has become, and what it will become unless we put a stop to the sadistic excesses of this trump/pence regime.
