Community Organizations are gathering to hold a festival and a press conference to bring to light the struggle of the Black Riders Liberation Party who have been wrongfully imprisoned and being held on trumped-up charges.

Black Riders members General TACO, Aryanna, and Stress were arrested near Oakland and the Crenshaw District of Los Angeles for the charge of “Conspiracy to Buy and Sell Illegal weapons.” The bail for them is set from 500,000 to 1,000,000 dollars.

Lala from the Black Riders says: “The Black Riders are a new Black Panther Party formation, and have been subject to repression since their inception over 10 years ago. They do community programs like the “Watch a Pig” program which observes the police while they harass, intimidate, and terrorize Black and Brown communities.”

Different individuals and activists are uniting for the fight to free them at this festival. People from different walks of life: anarchists, feminists, animal rights groups, grass roots community organizations, students, and families.

There will be a press conference and festival to educate our communities around this case and to build support for the members of the Black Riders Liberation Party so we can stop the attack against people who are fighting to change the conditions in our communities.

Present will be original members of the Black Panther Party speaking:

Elder Freeman, Wayne Phar, and also Bloodhound will be bringing Crips and Bloods for peace and unity and tie the red rag and blue rag together for symbol of truce and unity.

The conference will be facilitated and hosted by members of Cop Watch LA GC
