On Saturday July 22nd the 5 Borough Anti-Repression Committee will be hosting a solidarity BBQ & feast at a local community farm to celebrate our community of resistance, and to spread awareness about the charges J20 defendants are facing.
On January 20th, during massive protests at Trump’s inauguration, police cordoned off an entire city block and mass arrested over two hundred people without any prior orders to disperse the crowd; all 200+ are now facing 8 felony charges and roughly 75 years in prison.
In order to continue to build our capacity and strengthen our interconnected struggles, we are calling for a Week of Solidarity from July 20th to 27th to make support for the J20 defendants widely visible. July 20th marks six months since the initial actions and arrests; on July 27th, a motion to dismiss the charges will be argued in court.
This event will fall on our 3rd day in the week of solidarity. We will provide food to the best of our abilities, but feel free to bring your own dishes and beer to ensure we don’t run out.
Come play with the chickens/ducks, soak in some sun, and escape the city grunge with us!
Love & solidarity,
