      Today, Monday, August 25th would have been Mike Brown's first day of college. Instead, it is the day of his funeral. We are joining the #handsupwalkout campaign tribute to Mike Brown and a movement against police brutality on our University of Utah campus. Please join us.
Where: Library Plaza - East side of the Library 12:45 PM: Poster Making 1:00 PM: Introduction
         *Following the introduction we will read names of peoples who have been targets of such violence in the past, and open the movement to public forum.
        Share this message on all your social media sites! Ready, set go! Several hours remain to act together and even if it is only a handful of us, it is still how a movement is made!

        And in Cleveland  --   And in Palestine  --   And in the wide world this day is being held by each of us as a tribute to respectfully recall all people who have cried "Hands Up  -- Don't Shoot"

        Some one "tweeted" this:   surprised I haven't heard of a #HandsUpWalkOut at @cunylawschool today. :(

        Participate in this National Walk Out in tribute to and with Ferguson and every other community that has suffered people to police violence, including the Dayton, Chicago, Seattle, Miami, Albuquerque, and so many more communities we have lost count.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
