Weekend of resistance art


Join us for an informal report back with organizers recently returned from the coordinated weekend of actions in Ferguson, Missouri. Having stood in solidarity with local community groups fighting for racial justice and police accountability, these activists have important stories to share about how to sustain this movement moment and support related efforts in NYC.

This event is in conjunction with the planning for October 22nd events in New York City - The National Day to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalisation of a Generation. We'll use the time to consider lessons learned as we prepare for a day of non-violent protest along side families affected by police violence. Artists be will working in the Mayday space all weekend long (10/18-10/20) and attendees are invited to stay after the event to help finish artwork and sign making for the day of action.

REPORT BACK PARTICIPANTS INCLUDE:
William Sylvester from Question Bridge: Black Males

Keeshan Harley, a 19 year old member of Make the Road New York

Dragonfly from Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping

Rebel Diaz and the RDAC.BX
