On Friday August 22nd we dropped a banner reading ‘RIP Mike Brown, Fuck the Police’ over Fauntleroy Way leading to the West Seattle Bridge. We were inspired by the rebels in Ferguson who have spent the last few weeks in open conflict with the police and the white-supremacist state. Ferguson is beginning to fade from the headlines and the riots in the streets are beginning to die down, but the state murders black and brown people with impunity all the time and we hope that people in Ferguson and elsewhere will continue to fight back even when the streets seem empty. A banner hanging over a freeway is a small act of solidarity but one which we hope warms the hearts of
friends and rebels fighting in the streets.
