Sept 12 – Topple White Supremacy: Pack the Courts & the Streets!
September 12 is the next court date for some of the anti-racist freedom fighters arrested in connection with the toppling of the Confederate statue that once stood in Durham. Show up in Durham to demonstrate our continued support for them and keep pushing forward the struggle to tear down white supremacy!
We will also honor the resistance in Charlottesville, VA on the one month anniversary of the murder of Heather Heyer, and the struggle across the South to tear down the vestiges of the Confederacy and white supremacy – from monuments, to the school to prison pipeline, police brutality, the prison industrial complex, and more.
Communities and organizers from Charlottesville to Durham have shown that now, more than ever, is the time to take bold and courageous action — to pick either the side of white supremacy or the side of freedom fighters who dare to envision a different and better world for us all.
Join us in Durham to take the side of freedom!
8:30 am – Gather outside the Durham County Courthouse
10:00 am – March to victory celebration at Durham Central Park (501 Foster St.)
RAIN OR SHINE!
