Silicon Valley DSA denounces the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, David McAtee, Sean Monterrosa, and the many others who have died at the hands of police. The police function as a white supremacist gang that targets all people of color, and Black people specifically. The police serve to protect the powerful and terrorize the community.
We stand in solidarity with the ongoing nationwide protests for Black lives in cities like Minneapolis, Oakland, and San Jose. In San Jose, as in many other cities, police responded to protests against police violence by committing acts of police violence. To try to silence protesters, they used “less-lethal” ammunition (rubber bullets and bean bag rounds) to hurt and maim protesters; deployed tear gas in the middle of the COVID pandemic; they enforced an arbitrary curfew and made mass arrests.
Now is the time to fight back against police terror.
From 2-4pm, join us for an organizing call to DEFUND THE POLICE. We will make ourselves heard in the halls of power.
