A call for solidarity with the ongoing struggle against police repression in Akron, Ohio following the police murder of Jayland Walker.
The Akron police murdered Jayland Walker, and now they are trying to crush the protests with brute force. Since the demonstrations have begun the police have attacked people walking away from demonstrations, pointed rifles at the heads of activists, attacked people doing jail solidarity, tear gassed journalists knowingly and intentionally, knocked the father of Jacob Blake Jr. unconscious and put him in critical condition, and have beaten people while in custody.
We are asking for international solidarity :
– Donating to the bail fund on CashApp ($AkronBailFund) or Venmo (@AkronBailFund)
– Following FreedomBloc (https://linktr.ee/freedombloc) and Serve The People (https://linktr.ee/servethepeopleakron) for updates, and boost them on social media
– Holding solidarity demonstrations in your area
– Doing actions to raise awareness of what is happening in Akron, and to let those on the ground know that they are supported
– Calling local media and demanding that they cover this story
– Donating resources (https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3TL1TRMSCPBFM?ref_=wl_share)
The people of Akron are under attack, and it is up to us to make sure the world knows!
