This event is cancelled! Comment from the organiser:
“Hello! I am cancelling the event because I was too hasty with posting it online without asking the black community if this is what they need. Here is a list of places to donate: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10100318731336835&id=19403051&sfnsn=mo“
Minneapolis Solidarity Demo in Utrecht
Sunday 31 May, 15:00-16:30
In front of the Dom tower
This is a demo in solidarity with the communities for justice for George Floyd and against racism in Minneapolis right now. Against institutional racism and police violence in the US, in the Netherlands and everywhere else.
What will happen? Please come to the Dom tower
First we will use chalk to write solidarity messages on the street
Short speech and standing together, taking a solidarity photo to send
Die in – where everyone lays down on the ground (if you can and want to) to signify lives lost
Wrap up, & more chalking in town
Safety precautions Wear a mask, keep 1.5m distance, keep eachother safe. Spots on the ground 1.5m away from eachother will be marked with chalk. If there are too many people to stay safely 1.5m apart please spread out, use common sense when you arrive.
Minnesota Freedom Fund
The Minnesota Freedom Fund pays criminal bail and immigration bond for those who cannot afford to as we seek to end discriminatory, coercive, and oppressive jailing. Your support means more people keep their jobs and their housing while waiting for the outcome of their charges.
