October 21st March & #Abolition Weekend

from Disrupt IACP Philly

To kick off resistance to the IACP throughout their conference, a march has been called for the morning of Saturday, Oct. 21st, the first day of the conference. Meeting at Thomas Paine Plaza at 10AM, we will do our best to make it clear that the IACP and all police are firmly unwelcome in Philly.

Later on the 21st and on the 22nd, Philly for REAL Justice has called for two events as part of #AbolitionWeekend:

#AbolitionWeekend. It’s going down.

October 21-24, police chiefs from all over the nation will be gathering in Philadelphia. But we are clear that they are the heads of military forces which occupy black and brown communities, terrorizing and killing civilians. They will not come into our city without opposition.

On Saturday, October 21st, we rally outside of the Pennsylvania Convention Center, to denounce the militarized policing that plagues our country. [Event page here: http://bit.ly/2yvEKYN]

On Sunday, October 22nd, we are again outside of the Convention center, but this time, we will hold space as we discuss the theory of police abolition and the ways that we can fight for our freedom from the militarized police state. [Event page here: http://bit.ly/2xFryRG]

We need as many people as possible to come out, stand with us, and learn with us. Freedom is on the horizon. It’s time for us to move.

Below are some new outreach posters! Click images for PDFs.

Keep an eye out for more announced events and actions, and feel free to send any calls, questions or endorsements to noiacp@riseup.net.

Rally and March for Police Abolition

from Facebook

Over the last two months, the pigs have exceuted and brutalized several black people. In Philadelphia, David Jones was murdered by Ryan Pownall. Pownall shot David in the back, and claimed that David had a gun. An off-duty pig brutalized a young man named Naji Tribble. The cop slammed his head into the groud leaving him with a severe skull facture. Naji has suffered from seizures and other health problems as a result of the incident.

In Seattle, Charleena Lyles, was murdered by pigs in front of her three children. She’d contacted police to report a burglary and the cops shot her for having a knife in her hands.

In St. Paul, Jeronmio Yanez, the pig who killed Philando Castile in front of his girlfriend and daughter was found not-guilty of his murder.

The list of black and brown people murdered by cops is growing every day. We know we can NEVER reform a system created from the enslavement on African people. In order to proect our communities, we must completely dismantle the current system. We must fight for police abolition.

Please join us for a rally and march on June 28th at 5:30pm. We will gather in front of the Municipal Services building. Please join us!

from Tattle Tot

In case you missed it, Philadelphia Police Officer Ryan Pownall, a white man, shot David Jones, a black man, in the back earlier this month.

Jones died.

In the coming weeks I’ll be doing more reporting on the case. But for now, let us just enjoy and praise the brave soul who tagged the ugly-ass Frank Rizzo mural in south Philly.

RIP David Thomas Jones

Anti-Trump: Rally for Police Abolition

from Facebook

The election of a racist, sexist, xenophobic fascist man was a slap in the face to all people of color. The Fraternal Order of Police endorsed and campaigned for a racist, sexist, xenophobic and fascist.
THE FOP is UNFIT to serve our communities.

The police have chosen their side – a president who is anti-black, anti-immigrant, anti-Lantinx, anti-women, anti-LGBTQ, anti-US…so we are anti-POLICE.

We are calling for the police to be abolished. Only the complete dismantling of our current system of policing will lead to liberation for black and brown people. The police have no capacity or commitment for protecting and serving our communities. We will create just alternatives to policing that reflect the aspirations of black and brown folks. We demand:

-The immediate end of Stop and Frisk
-Reject Martina White’s HB1538 that allows police to remain anonymous after murdering citizens.
-End bail and fines
-Increased funding for public defenders
-End drug-testing for parolees
