Philadelphia city officials and their tax funded police agents of the state plan on disbanding the Parkway tent encampment dedicated to some of our homeless and displaced population. As talks between city officials and community organizers(Occupy PHA, Workers Revolutionary Collective, etc.) of the encampment have soured, the former is now seeking to use the same type of forceful tactics, to remove this growing community of people, as we have witnessed in the past. We are in need of massive resistance on the front lines as these city officials seek to apply unnecessary pressure, as opposed to being committed to real solutions.

The city has scheduled for this to take place sometime during the day, Friday, July 17. However, we need to have boots on the ground the night before in order to prevent a stealthy tactical approach known to be used to catch people of guard. If you or anyone you know can be there Thursday evening, please come!! Otherwise spread the word to all the freedom fighters you know within the city and beyond that on Friday we plan to stand in solidarity against the tax-payer funded police reign of terror.
