i searched for this but couldn't find it, hope it's not a repost. i want to find an English version of the petition, the Facebook site says one is coming soon. Something else i read while researching seems to indicate that she was (or is?) locked up, but this only mentions a fine, so any help w/info would be appreciated so we can support! Asante sana!
The African French star athlete Sister Eunice BARBER was unjustly fined 5000 € (about $6,300) by a French court Tuesday Dec 2 for allegedly rebelling against the police in March 2006. Actually, she was assaulted, insulted and beaten by the police officers as proven by witnesses and video records of the incident. But her lawsuit against them was simply ignored and turned down. Now the unfair court arbitrarily declared her guilty on the charge of so-called "outrage, rebellion and refusal to obey".
Sister Eunice BARBER is Former long jump and heptathlon world champion.
Her Friends and Supporters have launched a petition online to support her and together with her, they have started an Advocacy Group to Fight Police Violence in France. Please, check the attached translation in colonial English. And go to the petition link (site in colonial French) to sign and send a message of support to our Sister while viewing the video footage on the police assault on her.
