DC Activist’s Home Raided, Request for Solidarity

On Monday, April 3, 2017, Metropolitan Police Department raided a known activist’s home in the Petworth neighborhood of Washington, DC.

According to the search warrant, the raid was in furtherance of “the investigation into the conspiracy to riot” and to search for items associated with the “Black Bloc march on January 20, 2017”.

Among the items taken were cell phones, computers, and irreplaceable personal belongings. The known activist’s home was targeted because MPD believed he was in possession of the equipment used to organize and support the protests.

Due to this miscarriage of justice, we are asking for solidarity from the community at large to help replace the thousands of dollars worth of computers and other electronic equipment seized.
