2020 noise demoIn solidarity with the international Justice for George Floyd and in response to the prison cop murder of Jamel Floyd at Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center, Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement NYC (RAM-NYC) and NYC ABC will be outside MDC making noise in support of those behind the walls. Come #MakeNoise with us in NYC as we join solidarity actions here and around the country.

Since the murder of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis on May 25, a previously unimaginable wave of revolt has swept across the country. People have fought back against the cops, who for so long have slaughtered Black folks in the streets without consequences. As we come close to the brink of revolution that could finally abolish white supremacist police and the institutions that constitute policing, we will be struggling closely alongside our imprisoned comrades, who face enslavement in the prison system.

On June 3, Jamel Floyd, who was imprisoned at Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC), was murdered by guards after staging a rebellion in his cell. NYC ABC stands in solidarity with those fighting for freedom against the system that places them in cages and regularly brutalizes them.

The police and prison system operate hand in glove to murder, enslave, and terrorize Black people. In order to abolish police, we must also abolish prisons!

All power to the rebels, fighting against injustice and for a better world!
