The past couple days will go down as some of the ugliest, most violent days of police brutality in American history.
People were beaten, battered, and shot in dozens of cities. Many suffer critical injuries. They were non-violent protesters. And they were met with violence, coast to coast.
We’re in a crisis of state violence. We must stand together and protect one another.

Police are pepper spraying children in the face. Shooting journalists with rubber bullets. Firing paint and tear gas at peaceful residents. Busting car windows. Tasering and arresting people who aren’t even protesting. (If you don’t believe me, you can go look at the videos all over my Instagram feed.)
This is where we are right now. Police across the country have shown just how racist and violent they are.
We can only endure this together, and we must make bold, ambitious demands nationwide to stop this crisis.
