Know Your Rights Training And Support For Freddie Gray Protest says
On Friday, May 1st, at 7p, Austin (TX) activists will be organizing a protest on behalf of Freddie Gray and all the victims of police abuse, and in support of the rising up of communities across the nation in defense against the oppression of the police state. [https://www.facebook.com/events/1489293138012476/] <---- Please join this event page!

We will be hosting a Know Your Rights and #FilmThePolice training at 6p at the same location. Afterward, we will stand in solidarity with the protesters who demand justice, and we will film the police should they try to intimidate, harass, injure, or arrest the protesters.

VERY IMPORTANT: We will NOT take the stage. We will NOT lead the protest. We will NOT try to take credit for this protest. We are there only to support, and to the extent necessary, to protect the protesters. If reporters come to ask us why we are protesting, we will tell them that "we are here in solidarity with all the victims of police abuse" and direct them to the organizers of the protest. We stand in solidarity with all people who have been affected by police violence, and we want to see real change happen. If you can't agree with this position please respect us and the event organizers and do not attend this event.
