I havenโ€™t seen anyone talking about the Statue of Liberty protester

The lady who climbed the Statue of Liberty on July 4th was Congolese immigrant and activist Therese Patricia Okoumou

She was protesting ICE, and sheโ€™s quite plainly an icon for doing this.

Sheโ€™s being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in NYC, however Rise and Resistโ€”her affiliate organization has her a lawyer and is working with her.



Stop!Calling!The!Cops!On!Black!people! . You arent fooling anyone with your excuses about feeling “scared” or “worried”.Black people existing around you isnt something to be “scared” or “worried” about.

White people arent actually scared.They are using their racism and privilege to make it difficult for black people to exist peacefully and go about their business in particular areas.
