NDP 2012 in Greensboro, NC

Protests took place all over the country (and beyond!) yesterday against police brutality, mass incarceration, political repression, and all other aspects of police state America. We need your info and thoughts on this year’s protests, especially your video, photos, artwork, audio, and anything else relating to yesterday’s events. News coverage too. If there was something that inspired you–an image, a chant, a speech, a performance–share it! This is how we inspire each other, and build this movement.

We also need reports from all of the different areas that participated in NDP this year–this really helps us to understand what the situation with police brutality, mass incarceration, and political repression is like all around the country, and how people are fighting back.

Send reports and links to photos, video, etc. to oct22national@gmail.com.

Looking forward to hearing from you, being inspired by what we’re all doing, and sharing it all back with everyone!
