Sunsara and four other participants in Take Patriarchy by Storm NYC, attended a service at St. Patrick’s (a historically right-wing, anti-birth-control, anti-abortion, anti-queer and anti-woman stronghold), and waited for the priest to say: “Please be seated.” At this time, these five brave fighters against the war on women, called out, “ABORTION ON DEMAND AND WITHOUT APOLOGY! STOP THE WAR ON WOMEN! FORCED MOTHERHOOD IS FEMALE ENSLAVEMENT!”
Sunsara and one other comrade have been arrested, are being detained, and have charges against them pending: disorderly conduct and disrupting a religious service.
We are asking you to call the Midtown North Precinct where these two women are being held for speaking out against one of the biggest advocates for the all-out war on women that this movement seeks to put an end to. CALL them at 212-767-8400, and tell them the charges should be DROPPED and these two women should be RELEASED. CALL, spread the word of this outrageous backlash as far as you can, and stay tuned for more information as we receive it.
