Mariner East II Pipeline Construction Crews Approaching Pennsylvania’s Camp White Pine; Help Needed

from It’s Going Down

Construction crews are closing in on both sides of Camp White Pine. For nearly two years, Elise and Ellen Gerhart, along with many allies, have been holding tree sits on their property to defend their land from Energy Transfer Partners’ Mariner East II Pipeline. The project would destroy their family’s land in order to export highly volatile fracking waste to Europe for plastics manufacturing.

Already during construction, Mariner East II has caused dozens of spills, contaminating water supplies and in some cases permanently damaging residential wells.

As the Gerharts prepare to take a bold stand to protect their land, they need our support.

Jewish Voice for Peace Action & No IACP Bail Fund

from Disrupt IACP

An online fundraising page has been set up in coordination with the Philly Anti-Repression Fund to preemptively prepare for any possible arrests during the mobilization against the IACP.

From the No IACP Bail Fund:

Organizations and individuals will be mobilizing in mass demonstrations and have called for decentralized, autonomous actions throughout the weekend to oppose this gathering, and we need your help! Any funds you can give will go towards bail in the event of arrests that weekend, and it’s crucial that we fundraise in advance in order to show people coming out for this mobilization that we support them.

Please donate what you can – anything you can give helps!

** All funds not used for bail during the IACP conference will be donated to the Philly Anti-Repression Fund to support future arrestees. **

Check out phillyantirepression.wordpress.com for more information on the Philly Anti-Repression Fund!


Jewish Voice for Peace – Philadelphia has called for an action on October 22nd outside the convention center targeting the participation of the Anti-Defamation League in the IACP conference. Their call, titled Tell the ADL: End Deadly Police Exchanges, reads:

TELL THE ADL: END DEADLY POLICE EXCHANGES. Militaristic policing doesn’t make us safe!

Why will the Anti-Defamation League, a self-professed civil rights leader, have a table at a conference of police chiefs?

Join JVP Philly for this action outside the International Association of Chiefs of Police annual conference. We’ll be out there to call on the Anti-Defamation League to stop running exchange programs between U.S. police departments and Israeli military. These exchanges exacerbate racist police violence, militarization, and surveillance both here and in Israel/Palestine.

Policing doesn’t make us feel safe, and we reject safety built on militarized, racist, Islamophobic policing.

We’re working towards a world in which safety for all people is created through community and justice, and not for some people only through violence against others.

This action is part of the #DeadlyExchange campaign to end police exchanges between the US and Israel. To learn more and get involved with this local campaign email philly@jvp.org.

#EndtheDeadlyExchange #AbolitionWeekend

A facebook event for the JVP event can be found here.

Notably, the ADL recently released a “primer for law enforcement” on antifa activity which included recommendations that police “plant undercover agents among antifa activists, and … film protests.” This sort of collaboration on the part of ostensibly progressive “civil liberties” organizations is a key component of the counterinsurgency strategies that the IACP promotes.

Let’s shut them all down.

Other ways to help:::
Defendj20resistance.org

There will be an information table with zines and other media meant to help educate and inform people about the situation with J20 defendants, anarchism, mutual aid, state repression, community building and related subjects. I also plan to have an appearance by a public speaker that will speak on these points as well. Punk is undeniably political and the political is undeniably personal. We need to have more conversations with each other and our communities at large about social and political issues and movements. We can teach each other how to make this fucked up world a better place, as we all have varying experiences and lessons learned from those experiences. If anyone has any offering to contribute to this event in this way please don’t hesitate to reach out. Let’s strengthen our community and stand in solidarity with each other in every way possible.

This morning, Philadelphia police arrested a dear friend and anti-racist organizer, allegedly in connection with the most recent defacement of the Frank Rizzo mural in South Philly. Frank Rizzo, former mayor and police commissioner of Philadelphia, was a notorious white supremacist whose legacy the city continues to celebrate. Active campaigns to take down the statue of Rizzo outside City Hall are ongoing.

Please DONATE and SHARE this fundraiser to support action against systemic racism and white supremacy in Philly! Any funds you can give would be deeply appreciated and will help get our friend out of jail as soon as possible!!!

Benefit show for Sophia (Hospitalized by Police)

from Facebook

An amazing friend and accomplice Sophia was beaten by police at an Alt-Right Counter Rally in Seattle the day after Charlotesville. Most of y’all knew her when she lived in Philly, but now she goes to school in Seattle.

At the counter-rally, she was hospitalized and had to get a ct scan and stitches in her head. We are trying to raise money for her to cover her hospital bills (copay for insurance, and any healing requirements). We are looking for bands willing to play a set for her! if you are interested, please message us, or comment!

Door fee will be sliding scale, if you can do 5-10 bucks, that’d be great, if you can’t donate, no one will be turned away.

Here is her statement:
“Hey y’all I just wanted to let everyone know that I am doing okay. Yesterday I had to go to the hospital after being hit in the head multiple times with a wooden baton. I had to have lacerations in my scalp stitched up and get a ct scan. All results came back clear with no internal bleeding or skull fracture. I am still on watch for any vision, neck and nerve problems that might occur from blunt force to the head. I am so thankful that I currently have health insurance and all of my medical expenses besides a co-pay are covered. Thank you to so many of you who reached out about helping with medical expenses. I encourage you to donate funds to folks effected in Charlottesville. My injury resulted from police protecting white supremacists. They are reporting no injuries even though many folks were attacked with chemical weapons, flash bangs, and blunt force. The police do not exist for protection. They exist to uphold oppression, white supremacy, capitalist interests and will use any means necessary to do so. This injury will not keep me off the streets and I will continue to fight. I am just so thankful that injuries were not worse.” please to not share for protection, but you can copy/paste if you would like”
