Block The Bunker says
Members of council under the influence of mayor Murray are trying to pass a resolution in favor of the bunker that would approve for the project to receive 149 million dollars THIS MONDAY (while Councilmemeber Sawant who opposes the bunker is away in India) THIS WILL NOT STAND.

SHOW UP this Monday at city council chambers at 2:30 and demand that this resolution not pass.

Organize your friends, family, community and CALL/EMAIL city council demanding they not pass this resolution

(Thank you Gregory Lewis for putting much of the following together)
Contact the city council NOW, especially councilmembers Gonzalez, Harrell, Herbold, and Johnson and demand that:

1. Black lives, and lives of people of color generally, actually begin to matter in Seattle when it comes to city policies and projects.

2. They either vote against the resolution being pushed in favor of allocating 149 million dollars to the police bunker and/or call to postpone voting on the resolution until Councilmemeber Sawant returns from India.

2. They access and USE the Racial Equity Toolkit (http://www.seattle.gov/Documents/Departments/RSJI/RacialEquityToolkit_FINAL_August2012.pdf), before any further action is taken in favor of the bunker. There is a process the council is NOT following at this time.

3. They not make any money allocations at this time. The community is forced to wait until September-October of each year to present any funding requests, often much smaller in scale. The SPD should NEVER have priority over the community.

4. They defund this bunker project completely. There are viable public safety alternatives that cost far less in taxpayer dollars and Black lives.
