We are New York City Anti-Repression Committee.
We are the thousands of people who took over highways, blocked traffic and #shutitdown to protest police violence and murder. In the cold streets of NYC, we started out as strangers, marching and chanting side-by-side. We often faced cops too eager to use their batons and pepper spray. Many of us were arrested. The police continue to criminalize us because they want to silence us. But we know better. Police violence is what brought us together. Let’s use this moment to support each other in the street and in the court. Come join us.
