As streets in towns and cities across the country fill with Black protesters and allies rising up to demand justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and the countless Black lives stolen by white supremacist policing and centuries of oppression — the State has met protestors with batons, teargas, drones, stun grenades, rubber bullets, armored vehicles, and live ammunition.
Now, every hour, more and more Governors are calling on the National Guard to flood our streets and reinforce police departments already enacting a racist mandate of suppression of dissent.
As antiwar activists who rose up against National Guard deployments that would further militarize the U.S. southern border, it is time again to rise up against the suppression of Black uprisings and the militarization of our streets today. Will you join me?
Sign and demand your governor end the war on Black people and pull the National Guard off our streets NOW!
