Protestors gathered at the Cincinnati Police Department’s District One precinct last Friday to criticize the lack of response to recent murders of Black citizens by police across the country. Activists from Mass Action for Black Liberation and Cincinnati’s Socialist Alternative spoke at the event.
Signs call for the Cincinnati Police Department to be defunded or abolished altogether.
Protestors, whether affiliated with the national Black Lives Matter organization or not, reiterate the point that all black lives matter.
A sign (left) reads, “Racism is small d*ck energy.” Flags and homemade signs reiterate the protest’s theme: “Black Lives Matter.”
Signs call for justice in response to the deaths of Breonna Taylor, Elijah McCain, Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd, as well as others who have been killed or injured by police in recent months.
