Press Conf: West Philly Organizer Anthony Smith Arrested by Federal Agents Amidst Protests

On Wednesday, federal agents arrested Philadelphia civil rights activist Anthony ‘Ant’ Smith. The arrest and charges are reportedly connected to events during the George Floyd protests in Philly in late May.
