May 13, 2015 – #Mpls2Madison – Minneapolis, MN
The Black Liberation Project organized a #MPLS2Madison rally in solidarity with Tony Robinson, an unarmed black man killed in Madison, and other black lives taken by the police.
The night’s rally started at the Government Center in downtown Minneapolis and turned into a march that snaked through the streets stopping at the First Precinct.
The police repressed the march with pepper spray as it marched back to the Government Center. Victims of the pepper spray included 10 year old Taye.
May 14, 2015 – #Justice4Taye – Minneapolis, MN
The day after Minneapolis Police pepper sprayed peaceful #Mpls2Madison protestors, which included a 10 year old child, the community gathered, to once again take the streets to protest police brutality.
Taye, the 10 year old pepper spray victim, led the march with chants like “I Can’t Sleep”, “My Life Matters”, and “I cant see – Stop macing me”.
The march went to Hennepin Ave and 4th St., down the block from the First Precinct. From there, the community formed a full wall of bodies around the intersection, listened to a speaker and had Taye close out the night with the Assata chant.
