In response to the call for a week of solidarity against repression, a banner was hung on Cedar Ave in Minneapolis. Flyers declaring solidarity for all rebels facing repression were scattered in the area. This effortless act joins those others across the territory in expressing unwavering support for all who take action. Be they water protectors who continue the struggle against industrial development projects, or those who tore through Washington D.C. during the inauguration, or those who dared defy the implementation of the so-called social parasite law in Belarus.
The banner not dropped from an overpass but hung facing the street. The former, no doubt a relic of the activist mentality inherited by so many. Instead, this banner offers a statement of encouragement in a neighborhood already familiar with social conflict.
“We aren’t declaring war; we’re just revealing it.”
