Minnesota Uprising Alert: Request for Support

On this, the 50th anniversary of the Attica Prison protests/uprising for human rights, we highlight that the April 23, 2021, Mellon Sawyer UC-Davis “Abolitionism and Communism” panel included urgent requests from community activists in the chat requesting support and donations to legal defense/commissaries for protesters arrested in Minneapolis in the wake of George Floyd’s execution by police. Although former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted, government, DAs, police continue highly punitive and draconian repression against protesters across the country. Please read and respond to requests from targeted activists.
