From Frank Chapman: "Listening to some of our people who call themselves leaders admonishing us about violence and going along with reactionaries and public officials calling the people in Minneapolis rioters fills me with anger and disgust."
"Whenever the oppressed rise up they are always told you are hurting no one but yourself. "I understand your anger but this is your neighborhood you are burning down," they say. Really?!
You mean these are my slums, my roach infested houses, that I am forced to live in. "
"You mean these are my police stations that function like military outposts where daily racist assaults are staged against us. Protesting against these oppressive conditions and killer cops is a democratic right."

We are fighting for an end to racist violence, and for the rights of workers, many of whom are Black, Latinx, and Indigenous, not to be forced back to work with covid-19 still ravaging their communities. Image

Gerald Reed is still in NRC at Stateville. His health has improved but we are still pushing for prisons to test everyone inside & not just those who are seriously ill.
This article outlines the importance of mass testing in addition to #MassReleaseNow:…
@GovPritzker is moving very slowly on depopulating prisons and jails. We suspect this is partly due to pressure from right wingers who obviously don't want anyone to be let out of prison, so we need to build more pressure to counterbalance them. Keep calling! Image
