STOP THE COLLECTIVE PUNISHMENT AGAINST THE BLACK COMMUNITY OF ST. PETERSBURG FLORIDA!
The South Side of St. Petersburg is currently under siege by police agencies from throughout the area. Under the pretext of searching for a “suspect”, the entire Black community is being subjected to a form of collective punishment, with the area being sealed off, and homes, vehicles, and individual pedestrians being stopped and searched.
We call upon all our members and supporters to immediately call in to the St. Petersburg Mayor’s office and the Police Department and demand a halt to this collective punishment, and to make them aware that we are all watching their actions.
