UNITY IN STRUGGLE
~ The ONYX Organizing Committee & Anarchists of Color invite you to join us for a “Hands Off Assata” Speak Out and “Welcome Home GP” BBQ. ~
The placing of Mama Assata Shakur on a terrorist list is the United States latest and most egregious attack on the freedom fighter who has inspired so many of us to do the work we do.
Additionally, it is an attack on all of us that have committed our lives to fighting repression and home-based terrorism that takes the form of police terror, the miseducation of our young people, under-resourced neighborhoods and an overflowing prison system.
We see the attacks on activists at the local level too with the harassment, intimidation and even incarceration of our comrades. As a most recent example, Comrade GP Walker, co-chair of the ONYX Organizing Committee was arrested and imprisoned for almost two months on bogus charges of parole violation. Brother GP was subsequently released with all charges dismissed.
These new and dangerous attacks require an unprecedented demonstration of unity among all of the different groups working for justice in the Bay Area. The ONYX Organizing Committee & Anarchists of Color invite you to join us for a “Hands Off Assata” Speak Out and “Welcome Home GP” BBQ.
This POTLUCK BBQ will offer us a chance to speak out against State Terrorism, network with other like-minded people doing the work and bring attention to the need for unity in our struggles.
This event is immediately following the ONYX Organizing Committee’s Door knocking campaign at the Hold Out from 2-4
