ON THE 11TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ASSASSINATION OF ANARCHIST ACTIVIST BRAD WILL. - By Warcry
11 years ago today, I heard that one of my best friends, a true comrade and someone who was my only family, a brother to me, would never come home again. The news that our beloved anarchist activist friend Brad Will had been fatally shot by police, while filming an uprising in Oaxaca, Mexico, eventually reached his family and friends. Around the world, hundreds of people mourned Brad, who had touched many lives in the movements he had participated in and loved. The people of Oaxaca also expressed their appreciation for his solidarity and sacrifice. They paraded down the street with his coffin and picture. To them, he was not just a “gringo” who came as a spectator, but someone who cared about their resistance enough to risk his personal comfort and safety for their community and political struggle.
