This week there were also ad hacking actions against police brutality and a banner drop from a squat. On Monday, in honor of International Day Against Police Brutality, there was a march organized to fight back against police brutality and demand justice for its victims

The police is racist and sexist. Their function is to protect private property and the ruling class. We fight for a world without cages and cops.

Three weeks ago, Sarah Everard was kidnapped and murdered by a Metropolitan police officer in London. A few days later, her vigil was violently interrupted and shut down by the same police force, during which multiple FLINTA* people were attacked and arrested by the police. Meanwhile, the UK has been attempting to pass a new 'anti-protest bill' which would give police even more room to forcibly intervene in protests which cause a 'serious disruption' - effectively giving police additional legal justification for the use of force during any and all protests. Here in the Netherlands, complaints about excessive use of force by the police has increased in the last year. In July of 2015 in the Hague, Mitch Henriquez was murdered by cops. Now, six years later the cop who killed him only received a six month suspended sentence. This is not justice for Mitch, this is police getting away with murder. Meanwhile, in Greece, anti-police brutality protests are being violently attacked by police and the government is cracking down on protests using covid as an excuse. It is clear that the police are not here to protect anything but capital and the state. We must fight back against oppressive policing measures.

We need to and will fight back against gender based police violence.

We will not be quiet as racist police continue to murder people on the streets.

Note: FLINTA* stands for Female, Lesbian, Intersex, Non-binary, Trans*, and Agender
