In the days following the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown's death at the hands of Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, there were multiple sightings of anti-police graffiti throughout the Central District.
Back in August 2014, outside the burnt-out husk of the QT on W. Florissant Ave. in Ferguson, MO we ran into some white people and old folks pissed off over having witnessed younger people tagging anti-Police messages on the concrete barriers facing W. Florrisant Ave. These oldheads’ respectability politics rhetoric made us wonder if someone who pissed them off so much might have something in common with us, so we made a pilgrimage to the now-fenced in QT to check out “the writing on the wall” and asked around.
Beat The Raid will be a place to hear up to date info on the repression of anti-pipelines activists and anarchists in so called Vancouver, BC. We are still fundraising and now selling no pipelines patches and t-shirts to help with legal funds. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions and interview requests.
Together we will beat the isolation the state imposes on us.
