–2pm: Black DNC Resistance March against Police Terrorism & State Repression Resistance March.
All week: Listing of many actions
Progressives, socialists, feminists, Black Lives Matter, environmentalists, and anti-war activists: Let’s build a united front to take on the racist, capitalist Democratic party!
The Presidential elections that take place every four years bring about only cosmetic changes: different faces running the government while the same billionaire masters still call all the shots. Whether it’s Clinton or Trump, Democrat or Republican, police will still terrorize us and low wages will keep us in or near poverty. That is, unless we fight back!
WE’VE HAD ENOUGH! No more fake “democracy” in our city!
NOT while racist cops run wild.
NOT while our public schools go criminally underfunded.
NOT while our people suffer some of the highest poverty levels in the country.
We demand self-government, not super rich capitalists. Free Mumia and all political prisoners! Reparations now! Women’s and LGBTQ liberation now! Abolish capitalism and oppression NOW! It’ll only happen if we FIGHT FOR IT!

– Help hold up a 125 ft-long scroll of names of women killed by cops or died in police custody. Speak out on the questions: “If cops don’t say or do anything when they witness fellow police behaving violently and unjustly, is it fair to say there are no good cops?” “What will it take to stop the list of names from growing?”

On Monday, April 6 – be outside the Municipal Court at 2pm on Monday at 1301 Filbert Street in Philadelphia to support the Philly 10 – activists arrested on March 19 while protesting at a meeting where Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey and DA Seth Williams were going to discuss law enforcement issues. This was the same day Williams announced that two police officers involved in the death of Brandon Tate-Brown would not be charged.
The Philly 10, held a press conference on March 26 outside Philadelphia City Hall to counter the cops’ continued racist media vilification of the movement against police brutality and murder.
Megan Malachi, a member of the R.E.A.L. Justice Coalition and one of the Philly 10, told the media: “The actions of the PPD at the community policing panel is a prime example of their wanton, violent aggression in response to dissent from the people they are charged to ‘protect and serve.’ It is clear that we can no longer attempt to reform the PPD. They should be immediately disempowered, disarmed and disbanded.”
Rufus Farmer, another of the 10 arrestees, called Commissioner Charles Ramsey and the PPD’s version of events “completely out of touch with reality.”
Come out Monday with signs and banners demanding to know who killed Brandon Tate-Brown and that all charges against the 10 be dropped.
On Tuesday, April 7: 10th Ferguson to Philly Town Hall Mtg. – 6:30 to 9pm. 1501 Cherry St., Philadelphia
