Candlelight Vigil at 23rd & Union on Friday

Candlelight Vigil

For Degene Barecha

Owner of Philly Cheese Steaks
Tragically Killed on Wednesday

Join Your Neighbors to
remember Mr. Barecha, show
support for his family, and help
take back our streets from
violence

Friday 2/1 at 5pm
23rd & Union

A central area resident noted:
Our friends at centraldistrictnews.com have created a flyer for tomorrow evenings candlelight vigil - above and linked at: http://www.centraldistrictnews.com/media/community/2008/2/1/CandlelightVigil.pdf


A few of us are going to distribute around 24th/25th Ave north of Union but I'd encourage others to print this out and distribute far and wide.

This was a hard working guy who was killed solely because of the drug-dealing thugs that hang out in our neighborhood --- and we really need a massive showing tomorrow for the sake of his family and to make a game-changing statement that enough is enough.

So please recruit whoever you can to come tomorrow evening.

CD News notes:

We have been informed by someone close to the family of Degene "Safei" Barecha that a Candlelight Vigil/Non-Violence Demonstration for the victims of yesterday's shooting at Philly's will be held at 23rd and Union tomorrow, February 1st at 5:00pm. Whether or not you knew the victim, it would be nice for the neighborhood to show our respect. This is a great opportunity for people to organize efforts to fight this kind of violence.
