The National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression (NAARPR) called for a National Day of Protest for Saturday, May 30. Baltimore will heed the call. Peoples Power Assembly, member organization of NAARPR, will hold a car caravan demonstration to demand an end to the racist murder and violence that the Trump administration has willfully unleashed.
Not only is the government standing by as COVID-19 ravages Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities, but the police and racist vigilantes brazenly hunt and kill Black people while they sleep in their beds and in broad daylight.
The demonstration will demand justice for George Floyd, murdered by police officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota; for Breonna Taylor, murdered in her sleep by police officers in Louisville, Kentucky; and Ahmaud Arbery, lynched by white supremacist vigilantes in Brunswick, Georgia.
The demonstration will also protest conditions in prisons, jails, and immigrant detention centers that have allowed them to become hot beds for COVID-19 infection, while denying prisoners sanitary products and medical care.
