We created this blog in order to share memories and stories of our dear friend Ignacio Celedon (aka Fito), who was killed in an attempted robbery early in the morning on Sunday, September 12th in South Berkeley. Fito led an amazing and enthusiastic life, and we invite everyone who knew him to contribute your memories and pictures. You can also find updates here on community meetings and links to news stories about his passing and the ongoing effort to bring his killers to justice.

Fito was from Chile, and since his death his family and his fiancee's family have spent a lot of money on travel back and forth between there and the Bay Area. We've created an opportunity for you to donate in order to help offset some of these costs.

Viva Fito Block Party: March 12

To honor Fito in the way he'd appreciate best, we are throwing him a block party on his half-birthday and 6-month date of his death. We will be performing and making art, playing music, and raising awareness to the amazing person that Fito was. We also want to remind the community that the horrific murderers whom took him away from us are still not charged. Unfortunately finding justice will never bring him back or revoke the pain we feel, but it is the only method we have for making peace with such an inexplicable crime.

Please join us on March 12 for this special day. Fito's sister Alejandra from Chile is even going to be here. If you have ideas or would like to contribute by playing music, making art or helping to advertise, please email Amber at amberdnelson@gmail.com.

Otherwise, see you on March 12... a schedule of events is soon forthcoming.
