Minneapolis: A Community Anti-Police Gathering
Saturday, October 21st
Powderhorn Park, Minneapolis (Minnesota, USA)
South of the Lake
It’s obvious that the police don’t serve us, and never could. The very idea is like trying to cure a headache with a hammer. Many have worked together over the past years to push back against these modern day slave-patrollers, and have been met with varying degrees of success. However, we can’t help but feel that setting out to oppose the police with the hope of building strong communities after they have been abolished is in some ways a little backwards. Instead we need to find each other now, to build bonds based on trust and mutual desire that will sustain us as we work to dismantle the bleak world we are offered. Otherwise any oppressors we manage to drive off will eventually be replaced by a new class of managers eager to represent, restrain, and ultimately repress us.
So we are throwing a picnic. The grill will be roaring and the lit table will be, uh, lit… but most of all we are excited to meet and talk with each other. We’ll have a good amount of food for both carnivores and vegans. If you are able please consider bringing something to share or a donation so we can make this a regular thing once it gets warm again, but of course nobody needs to contribute if they can’t.
Abolitionists of all ages are welcome.
No cops, politicians or bigots.
