A renewed commitment to social justice and activism is underway and coming soon to Kansas City streets in solidarity with the memory of martyr and suspected 20 buck counterfeiter George Floyd.
To wit . . .
ORGANIZERS PLAN KANSAS CITY PROTEST "IN SOLIDARITY" WITH THE MEMORY OF GEORGE FLOYD AMID THE UPCOMING POLICE MURDER TRIAL FOR HIS DEATH!!!
Now . . .
We don't have a lot of deets but here are a few highlights that far too idealistic locals let slip . . .
- As usual, there's a call for PEACEFUL demonstration. Or at least "mostly peaceful" given costly riots last time around.
- Most don't expect massive turnout given that political organizers will have a hard time motivating followers without Prez Trump playing boogeyman.
- However, independent activists without party affiliation believe this might be an opportunity to renew demands to remove the KCPD Chief and advocate for more law enforcement reform locally. The newspaper and some MSM denizens have already worked to lay the groundwork with outcry over a recent police killing that won't be prosecuted.
Accordingly, here are "big picture" news links from both sides of the aisle . . .
