On February 19, Takiyah Thompson + 7 other anti-racist freedom fighters are going to trial to face charges connected to the toppling of a confederate monument in Durham. We'll be packing the court all day in support of our folks — Pack the Courts to Defend Durham!
We invite the community to come out and join us in the evening for a solidarity march and rally to greet the defendants as they leave trial (it'll be a long day!).
Local activists and community members will speak out against the real crimes of this society: gentrification and displacement, police killings and brutality, jail deaths and incarceration, deportations, and all of the countless attacks on people of color, LGBTQ people, women, and all working class people.
Join us in demanding that all charges against Takiyah Thompson and the 7 anti-racist defendants be DROPPED!
FIGHTING WHITE SUPREMACY IS NOT A CRIME!
DROP THE CHARGES!
