My name is Pamela Jean Newman and this is my last will and testament.
If I die for any strange reason, particularly one that results in a bullet wound I request that my body be fully examined. Even if y’all gotta fuck up my entire corpse to figure my shit out like an episode of bones, I require a full examination.
If I die in police custody, I did not commit suicide. Police custody is the LAST place I’d kill myself, because I would require vengance.
If it is said that I was murdered by any of my loved ones, it’s false because none of them would place a grudge into the grave.
If anything seems suspucious about my death, not only do I want a full investigation, I want a strategic system of protest, lobbying, direct action and fundraising to begin. If any of my requests are not met in a satisfactory way to my surviving family and life partner, I require this process to begin within 48 hours of my death.
Shut down the streets. Call out of work. Strike. Demand the news to report on anything other than my death. Arrive calmy and strongly outside of your local news stations. Let them know that Pam Newman was no victim of state violence, she was assasinated and her murder is resulting in the highest level of resistance ever assembled in this country.
I request, with all due respeect, a truce between rival gangs, as the time is now for us to unite as a people. My death represents the most agregious matter that I could ever think of, and I would love for you to stand with me in spirit and unite the hood to stop our true enemy, the state. The united States of America.
If y’all think I was murdered, I want you to tip over that statue of thomas jefferson on jefferson street in front of the mayor. If I was murdered, climb to the top of city hall in philadelphia and knock billy benn the fuck over. Do approrpiate actions as apply to your spaces.
If the state dare to murder me as I begin the process of creating an effective and diverse and POWERFUL resistance, I think we’ll have to step up our game and go full on fucking egypt. While that is happening, please think of some alternate systems we could work with because we need a plan.
Stand up, fight back.
Oh, and donate my body to science or creamate me, which ever makes more sese at the time.
Mikal and my cousin debbie get all of my shit.
Play just a girl by no doubt at my funeral and other catchy pop & rNb hits from the 90′s. Mummify me if there’s a lot of money to spend, and give all the rest to mikal and my cousin debbie.
fuck the police
black lives matter
