Sinning in Cincinnati
Protesters, angered by the fatal weekend police shooting of an unarmed black man, set fire late Tuesday to a market in a historic area of Cincinnati and looted buildings, police said.
Over the past week the people of Cincinnati have faced chemical attacks, rubber bullets, beanbag pellets, and strict curfews at the hands of the police but STILL they have continued to resist injustice. Refuse and Resist! has been on the streets with the people of Cincinnati protesting yet another stolen life. We encourage the people of Cincinnati to continue their righteous and spirited protest. Those who resist should be supported, not targeted!
There were members of the New Black Panther Party, the Nation of Islam, the Cincinnati Black United Front, several anti-police brutality and college organizations, and many other groups, including the Crips and the Bloods. Members of the Vineyard Community Church, a white church with a strong social agenda, arrived on a school bus escorted by police. In a genuine show of support from the white community, they served over 3000 boxed lunches of sandwiches, chips, cookies and drinks to many of the protestors.
