• Boston

This weekend, May 3-4, police from all over the Boston area will gather to  
hold trainings called "Urban Shield." Though the city of Boston is framing it  
as an "emergency preparedness" drill, *regional police forces will also be  
training in military tactics,* including home raids, surveillance, and the  
use of military weapons.

*On May 4th, STop Oppressive Militarized Police (STOMP) will host our own  
gathering and community speak out [1]* to bring together affected  
communities, share our experiences, and lay the groundwork for a city-wide  
movement that crosses neighborhood, color, and religious lines. We will say  
with one voice: Close the "gang" intelligence fusion centers! Stop the  
militarization of the police!

/Join us in sharing your story and building power to roll back militarism at  
home and beyond!/
