Madison Area DSA Stands in Solidarity with #Justice4George

The Madison-Area chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America condemns the public execution of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police. We stand in solidarity with protesters calling out the deeply entrenched pattern of violence, anti-Blackness, and oppression upheld by police in our country, in our state, and in our city. MADSA supports the entirety of last weekend’s demonstrations against the brutal police murders of George Floyd, Tony Robinson, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Sean Reed, and countless others. Furthermore, MADSA calls upon elected officials who supported the Saturday afternoon march to follow through on that support by meeting the demands of its organizers, Urban Triage, Freedom, Inc., and the Party for Socialism and Liberation–Madison: defund the police, institute reparations for all Black people, release all incarcerated Black people from jail, get cops out of schools, and institute community control over the police. MADSA encourages financially supporting Urban TriageFreedom, Inc., and the Free the 350 bail fund.
