The Jacob Blake family will be sponsoring a march on Monday, January 4, 2021 in Kenosha, Wisconsin. There is speculation that the Kenosha District Attorney will soon announce his decision whether he’ll put forth any criminal charges against the cop Ruben Sheskey that shot Jacob Blake in the back seven times (in front of his children) in August 2020. That terrorist act by Cop Sheskey sparked a mass people’s uprising that was attacked by police and white supremacist vigilantes, and the murder of two protesters and the wounding of another by Kyle Rittenhouse.
In anticipation of the D.A.’s announcement, the Democratic Kenosha Mayor is again participating in a mass build up of repressive state forces from local and regional police to the FBI and is working with the Democratic WI Governor to again bring in the National Guard all to terrorize the poor and working people (with specific targets Black and Brown people) in Kenosha. The people’s movement is not backing down and will continue forward in the new year beginning with the mass people’s march on January 4, 2021. Please share.
