“Today mass arrests were taken by our organization, supporters and members of the community who were marching for International working women’s day.
This year we marched to honor the victims of sexist violence such as Veneranda Martinez of the Montopolis area.
APD enacts violence against women everyday brutalizing and assaulting our communities and their own families. They ignore pleas for protection from women like Veneranda while shutting down any demonstrations against the sexism and oppression of this society.
As we have held campaigns against APD’s own abusive, sexist pigs. We know they have chosen to target our organization specifically.
We are enraged but not deterred. For each of us they arrest, five more will join to take her place!
