WEST COAST SOLIDARITY AGAINST POLICE BRUTALITY April 8-9th

All along the West Coast there is an eruption of anti-state and anti police actions happening in solidarity with Portland's increasingly active attack against the police. This is the emerging support network for anarchists and other anti-state/anti-capitalist revolutionaries to continue their vibrant struggle.

Comrades from various walks of radical resistance are taking the streets to let it be known we will not comply with the coercive, exploitative culture the cops use against us every fucking day of our lives.

This network of solidarity is exciting.
This is a sign of our power, our commitment, our understanding that we fight for our own survival in different ways, but within the same struggle.

We are reclaiming our cities, our communities and our freedom.
Lets not allow this momentum to die.
Share your attacks and triumphs against the state.
Allow us all to rejoice in our "civil disobedience."
Savor the moments of every broken window, every unarrested comrade, every space reclaimed.

Don't Stop. Always Attack!
With love, Increasingly excited anarchists
