NO CARS IN L.A. NO TANKS IN L.A. NO APARTHEID PASSES ON MTA BUSES AND TRAINS IN L.A. NOT ONE MORE DEPORTATION IN L.A. Los Angeles today is ruled by the privatizing, polluting, policing corporate class that is making life unbearable for the vast majority of the people. The city and the entire country, is creating a low-wage, no wage, global warming empire backed up by police, immigration raids, and military occupation. We need your help to fight for the social welfare state not the police state, the environmental justice state not the warfare state. The Fight for the Soul of the Cities is the fight for the soul of the United States-inside and outside its territorial borders.

Make no mistake, the equipment doled out to these school police departments are the same ‘weapons of war' we have witnessed utilized by police in response to social activism in the Black community in Ferguson, Mo.
