Seattle: We Demand Amnesty For All

#Olympia, #WA: Mayor’s house vandalized during rowdy anti-cop march

Olympia. WA. The night of June 12, an assortment of black liberation fighters, anarchists, and fellow travelers held a rowdy march against the police and the white supremacist world they maintain in downtown Olympia. In spite of the heavy militia presence tailing the march (30+ chuds from a new crew calling itself “American Wolf” in fluorescent green “peacekeeper” shirts with paint guns, regular guns, zip tie handcuffs; box trucks, and a limo), the march still managed to vandalize the mayor’s house, torch a US flag, bust up a bank and a Starbucks, and spread pro-black liberation and pro-abolition graffiti from downtown to the South Capitol neighborhood. There were no arrests.

#Seattle: PSPS Statement on Recent FBI Activity

Puget Sound Prisoner Support (PSPS) is an anti-repression collective based in Seattle. For 5+ years we have provided jail and legal support for people who have been arrested at protests and demonstrations. We walk people through the legal procedure of arrest, court proceedings, bail if necessary, getting in touch with a lawyer also if necessary, and in general help people understand a confusing legal system. We do not provide legal support for people who get arrested for civil disobedience; rather, we provide an “emergency service” for when participants of a protest or demonstration get arrested. We offer a safety net for people to land in when the unexpected happens and things go wrong. We’ve supported friends and strangers alike, bailed people out, showed up at court proceedings throughout trials, and helped with fundraising to cover legal costs. Our major caveat is that we do not offer support to anyone who would endanger our communities by way of cooperating with the police, the courts or any other governing agency. No snitching, plain and simple.
