Ferguson Organizing Weekend: Pro-Palestinian Groups Join Usual Cast of Characters to Incite More Violence

This coming weekend, Breitbart and others have reported on a new "Weekend of Resistance" planned in Ferguson, uniting the pro-Palestinian activists with the Ferguson activists. At first, you might wonder what these two movements would have in common, but they can explain that easily:

  • Saturday, October 11th: Large national march at the historic old St. Louis courthouse (where Dred Scott was denied his freedom) with Palestine support contingent.
  • Monday, October 13th: Action focused on a target highlighting intersections of militarized policing in Ferguson and Palestine.
