Baltimore activists’ attempt for a murder-free weekend proved to be too much to ask of the city, with at least three people shot, two of them killed, in less than 72 hours since guns were ordered to be put down. 

Activist Erricka Bridgeford promoted the campaign as a “Baltimore ceasefire” and “Nobody kill anybody” weekend that began on Friday and ended Sunday night, garnering the support of thousands on social media since May.


The city made it through Friday with no shootings reported, drawing hope from participants the campaign might see some success. But by Saturday, two men — ages 24 and 37 — were shot and killed in separate incidents just hours apart, according to the Baltimore Sun. Another man, 22, also suffered a gunshot wound to the arm, FOX45 reported.

Participants gathered at the scene of the shooting to comfort relatives and neighbors.

Bridgeford took to Facebook to ensure Baltimore residents the “ceasefire has NOT ended.”

“The #BaltimoreCeasefire has NOT ended.

If you are going to run around here acting defeated, A. Part of me wants to give you this nub to your eye, and then, to hug you, and B. You are not ready for this revolution. It’s fine. But please sit down & quiet yourself. Stop panicking out loud. Find a corner & watch us keep GETTING THIS WORK. Be in awe of how nothing stops us from healing our city. Just please know that you and your misguided, “It ain’t work” perception do NOT…. I REPEAT… DO NOT get to speak for this movement. I am turning off your mic right tf now.

If you want to talk about how we come from slaves who ran away, got killed… yet MORE slaves kept rising up…. YOU are a voice of this movement.

If you understand that the 2 lives we lost to violence inspire us to #VibrateEvenHigher… YOU are a voice of this movement.

If you understand how monumental it is that residents met 56% of the #NobodyKillAnybody goal with 41 hours of zero murder… and how traumatic it is that people’s families & friends have no more hours with their loved ones…

AND if you are able to hold both of these truths in your heart with sacredness & a fire to do better… YOU are a voice of this movement.

If you have not lost the beautiful feeling that WE created in this city….

If you haven’t forgotten the countless resources given during outreach…
the countless perceptions that have been shifted….
the immeasurable hope that young people have been given….
the undeniable love poured into the streets….
the strong example that Baltimore gave the world about the power of unity…
the beaming pride of our elders who yearned to see us stand in our power, and they lived to see us DO IT…
YOU are a voice of this movement.

If this effort has connected your work with other people who are doing good work, and you are going to move forward with building on those connections… YOU are a voice of this movement.

If you love Baltimore
If you ride for Baltimore
If you stand in Baltimore’s strength
If you see Baltimore’s beauty
If you cry for Baltimore
If you are out here getting justice for Baltimore
If you turn Baltimore’s blood stained streets into sacred spaces
If you are still gonna do the work in Baltimore after the media is long gone
If you don’t need a tshirt in order to rep your city….

You ARE this movement. You are me. I am you. Now, let’s face this new day being who we truly are.”

Baltimore has been marred by gun violence for years. The city has seen 204 murders by the end of July, a record number in the city’s history, the Baltimore Sun reported.

Nice try guys.

Just blame it on white people or the cops and carry on.

Remember- crack is whack.

God Bless.
