On the 50th anniversary of Stonewall and on the Day of Action that was called in support of pride defenders, Hamilton Police have arrested two additional people. That is two more people who have been arrested for fighting back against queer and transphobia, misogyny, and white supremacy.
That brings the current total of arrests to five. That’s right, five queers who have been targeted, harassed, and arrested. This is beyond fucked. Show your love and rage – come out to tonight’s We Make Us Safe: Drop the Charges! Free Cedar! rally 8:30pm at Gore Park.
Because now more than ever, it is clear that police and politicians do not keep us safe, and we need to show Hamilton some resilient queer pride!
