May Day 2014- #decolonize the US picks up steam

A scheduled day of protests in cities all around the country is garnering more anticipated attendees. The protests are Occupy-esque,  and they’re meant to be against the government in general and Capitalism. For more information, please visit the link above. All who live in the following cities are encouraged to attend:

Phoenix, Missoula, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Miami, Chicago, Philly, New York, Portland, Seattle, Baltimore, and possibly more.

Yesterday, a related group called Shut Down International Police Conference organized a protest in Phoenix in response to the 17 people who have been killed by police this year. A similar protest took place about a month ago against police brutality in Albuquerque.

Though Occupy isn’t seen as much lately, protesting is still alive and well.
