Supporters of Jonathon Tubby Demand Justice at Diverse Green Bay Protest, Vow To Continue Building People’s Movement

By WI BOPM

GREEN BAY, WI — A diverse crowd of dozens  participated in a “Rally Against Police Privilege” (Justice For Jonathon Tubby) protest Feb. 2, 2019 in Green Bay. The action was called after the Green Bay District Attorney’s Office announced Feb. 1 that no charges would be brought against the killer cops that murdered Jonathon. Tubby’s family has filed a federal lawsuit.

Participants at the Black Lives United – Green Bay sponsored protest came from throughout the Green Bay area, various Indigenous Nations, Manitowoc, Oshkosh, Racine and other locations.

Beginning with chants for justice such as “Native Lives Matter,” and “Black Lives Matter,” a circle speak out took place followed by a march on the Green Bay police station (See photos below).

Speakers throughout the event expressed their outrage regarding the police murder of Jonathon, sent condolences and solidarity to his family and pledged future support. Many made connections to the thousands of mostly Black and Brown people murdered by police in recent years and the ongoing colonial occupation of Indigenous Nations and other oppressed peoples and all the brutality that entails such as police/military occupations and under or no employment.

Before departing, the multinational crowd vowed to continue to fight for justice for Jonathon and others murdered by the police and to continue building the people’s movement.
