Strike for Breonna, Strike Against Police Terror
It’s official: the officers who killed Breonna Taylor will not be charged. While tragic, this is not surprising — the police, capitalism’s guard dogs, protect capital and the status quo and are therefore protected by the system they serve. Justice for Breonna Taylor and other victims killed by cops will not come through the courts. We must continue to protest and we must strike. We need to take action against racist cops and the capitalist system the institution of policing serves to protect.

Louisville PD is Trying to Cover up Breonna Taylor’s Murder. Don’t Let Them.
The Louisville Metro Police Department has released the incident report from the night of Breonna Taylor’s death. One problem: it’s essentially blank. The attempted cover-up of the case illustrates the “systemic” in systemic racism and the complicity of everyone in the criminal justice system.
