The Denver Police Department doesn’t want the anti-police demonstration this Friday, May 6th to happen. In fact, they went so far as to call the Justice Department’s Civil Affairs liaison in an attempt to “broker a deal” between police and march organizers. Only problem is that they failed to reach anyone taking responsibility for the organizing, and instead they plan to plant someone in the crowd Friday night to relay instructions to officers looking to repress the demonstration.
We aren’t interested in sitting down to talk with police, much less attempt to hammer out any kind of deal with them. This burgeoning movement won’t hold itself back because the police are “nervous” about the situation. That’s precisely what we set out to do in the first place. It goes without saying that we are well aware that negotiating with the police would only lead to a loss in momentum, in messaging, and in the power that is coming from the streets.
It isn’t like they would ever cave to the theoretical demands we would give them in order to call off the march anyway. Here is a brief sampling:
1.The abolition of the police department and the capitalist State in order to make way for a horizontally organized society based on the concepts of solidarity and mutual aid.
2.The immediate release of all material relating to the Marvin Booker case, specifically the video of his death, which we request be looped and broadcast on the side of one of Denver’s high rises.
3.The home addresses of all officers involved in excessive force and police brutality cases.
4.All police resources relinquished for recycling and re-purposing.
The list goes on, but you get the idea. Queen City Antifa refuses to engage in a dialogue with the Denver cops, mainly because they are swine that shouldn’t be trusted, ever, but also because we abstain from negotiating with wantonly murderous terrorists.
Rest assured, we’ll be in the streets Friday night and we’d recommend you come too.
