Demonstrations in Louisville continued after the grand jury ruling rendering Breonna Taylor’s killers innocent. This is the third consecutive night that protesters have taken to the streets demanding the arrest and abolition of the police.
Hundreds of protesters gathered at the weekly Stonewall demonstration for Black Trans Liberation, marching through the city before stopping for a speech given by Joel Rivera, a trans woman who was sexually assaulted by both male and female officers while in prison awaiting her bail hearing for exercising first amendment rights.
Police attacked Abolish ICE demonstrators at the Bergen County facility who were protesting in solidarity with the prisoners inside performing a hunger strike. Cops were filmed targeting a black protester, then arresting him. The Ridgewood for Black Liberation organization later stated that he had been released, but sustained injuries during the assault by police.
