Attack on Nea Ionia Police Station

From AMW

Responsibility Claim by George Floyd Revenge Unit:

How amazing is a perfect rendezvous? Somehow finding oneself, through luck, persistence, diligence, history, blind will, in the company of comrades. Then to find oneself in the grand plan of these people, then in the particular plan of a daring action. A leap into the unknown. To be in one moment, perfectly, together. Then to escape into the night, for another day of living, fighting, and making our own history.

What Will It Take to Stop the Police from Killing?

From Crimethinc.

Since the Ferguson uprising of 2014, considerable attention has focused on racist police killings in the United States. Reformers of many stripes have introduced new policies in hopes of reining in the violence. Yet according to the Police Shootings Database, the police killed more people in the US last year than in 2015. If police killings are continuing or even increasing despite widespread public attention and reform efforts, we need to revisit our strategy.
