WE 🥺 ARE 👀 BACK 🥳 MY G 🤨🤨 The pigs are getting a trial in March and it’s looking like prosecution in this case is likely. Because the trial has been set and we need to not be silent – we have decided it is time to resume the updates.
The four cops who murdered George Floyd are set to be on trial together in March 2021. The court is allowing cameras in the courtroom which is exceedingly rare in these kinds of trials and leads us to believe that there will be meaningful prosecution. Though, I believe that this will be a sacrifice of a few individuals in order to protect the institution – since only symbolic reforms have been conceded since the uprising of 2020 – it does speak to the power of the people. So you know, the Minneapolis City Council voted to increase the police force and budget proving once again that the powers at be are not interested in protecting us but only to protect themselves from a popular uprising.
Though in this case there may be justice; it does not erase the millions of people, particularly black men, who are sent to work slave labor in the prison industrial complex.
We call for complete abolition of both the police and the prison system.
