People gather in Baltimore to demand justice for Korryn Gaines

Baltimore, MD––Protesters gathered at Baltimore’s scenic downtown harbor to protest the execution of Korryn Gaines and the shooting of her young son, Kodi, by Baltimore pigs on August 27, 2016.

The demonstration was led by the People’s Power Assembly which is a mass organization of white leftist Worker’s World Party. Several speakers took to the microphone to demand justice for the murder of Korryn Gaines.

Korryn Gaines is the courageous African woman from Baltimore who resisted the pigs in an hours long standoff that ended with her being murdered by a military SWAT team.

The African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) was at the event to expose the police terror faced by Africans in the U.S. and to deepen the question of Black Community Control of the Police.

Korryn Gaines’ cousin, Creo, gave a moving speech about the need for Africans to be free from the oppression that we face at the hands of the State.

Members of the People’s Power Assembly spoke of “racism” and “fascism” and incorrectly outlined those ideologies as the cause of police terror in African communities.

While the People’s Power Assembly made a passionate plea for justice, it is clear to the APSP that the fight against police terror in African communities is a fight against the colonial State and must be led by the African working class.

Nkashama Sankofa of the APSP also spoke outlining the urgency for Africans to come into revolutionary organization.

Racism is simply the negative feelings one has against a particular race and fascism is when white people experience the violent and coercive repression from the colonial State that Africans are faced with daily.

Korryn was the victim of an the State and its oppressive military occupying force, not racism or fascism. It is imperative that every African woman, man and child recognize this and organize to bring down colonialism.

Join the APSP!

Black Community control of the Police!

Down with colonialism!
