For the May episode of Philly Liberation Radio, co-hosts Adiah Hicks and Jasper Saah are joined by Amelia Carter, an organizer from Penn Community for Justice, and Kayla Trimble and Saruh Almendarez from the Party for Socialism and Liberation. To commemorate the one year anniversary since the police attacks on 52nd street and I-676, we discuss the Philadelphia Police Department tear-gassing West Philadelphia residents at 52nd Street on May 31st, 2020, and against protesters demanding justice for George Floyd on I-676 on June 1st, 2020 during last summer’s historic uprising against racist police terror. We talk about the implications of those events on the mass mobilizations that followed, how community members fought back, and how Philadelphia residents are uniting to heal.
Join Philly Human Rights Appeal, Black Lives Matter – Philly, Reclaim Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Liberation Center, and community members on Monday, May 31st at Malcolm X Park from 12pm-4pm for a day of participatory art, advocacy, and action to commemorate the one year anniversary of these attacks.
