The mayors plan to party hearty while cops continue to kill Black and transgender men, women, and youth across the country. They will be boarding buses to attend a “Color of Life Global Celebration” at the California Academy of Sciences. Join with APTP to dampen their party.
Across the country mayors have allowed their police departments to become heavily militarized, with weapons and equipment provided by the U.S. military. They’ve invited repressive regimes like Israel to provide their departments with training. Israeli troops act as an occupying army to the Palestinian people, much like many police forces in the U.S. act with regard to Black communities and other communities of color.
We demand that the assault rifles, tanks, drones, and other military style offensive weapons be removed from our cities’ police departments. Instead we demand complete control over the police by the communities which they are supposed to serve.
