With frozen hands we reappropriated this city’s infrastructure to cast a few words of cold insurrection. A desire to set it all on fire sits just adjacent to the light-rail (which is dressed up as a carriage for the super rich — only Super Bowl ticket holders can ride this weekend!). An ode to the ZAD hangs above 35w from a bridge in South Minneapolis, welcoming tourists to a temporarily sterile downtown (they relocated the homeless for this special event). Helicopters flying over head, tanks on the ground — this is a sneak peak of a militarized police state. Lets not go down without a fight.

“A man who has a language consequently possesses the world expressed and implied by that language.” (Frantz Fanon)

Ok, let’s take a look at this mess:

• “Together as a community we are going through something no community wants to face together… It is the dignity of neighborliness, the dignity of community, it is the dignity of the city of Minneapolis… It is that strength that will carry us through as a community…My vision is that we catalyze this moment for peace…that we strengthen the bonds of our communities with police and with each other.” (Mayor Hodges)
