Mike Brown’s Father And Ferguson Protesters Demand $20 Million From - Black Lives Matter

Posted: Mar 3rd, 2021 - 3:01 pm

Ferguson activists demanded $20 Million from Black Lives Matter and said the organization of not providing enough aid to local activist groups in Ferguson, Missouri and other places around the country where racial justice protests have occurred.

“Today, we hold Black Lives Matter accountable,” said Tory Russell in a video posted to twitter. Russel is a self-described “frontline organizer” and “freedom fighter” from Ferguson, the place where protests erupted following the 2014 death of Michael Brown by the hands of police.

“What kind of movement are we building when we say ‘Black lives matter’ but the freedom fighters and the families are being left behind,” Russel said in a video in which he appeared alongside Michael Brown’s father.

“Where is our restitution?” the activist continued. “We’re not begging for a handout, we’re coming for what we deserve.”

The video was in response to news that BLM earned $90 million last year. Michael Brown Sr., only received $500 from BLM, according to Yahoo News.

Black Lives Matter had come under more public scrutiny within the last year. In December, the organization received a letter with demands for transparency on how funds are distributed from 10 of their local chapters. Following this, for the first time in eight years, BLM released detailed information about their finances.

Russel said that the $20 million he demanded for Ferguson activists would be used for Black Panther-style programs, annual commemorations for Michael Brown’s life, and organizing anti-racist fellowships and stipends.
