After rumors about cops showing up around 10pm Tuesday night, we stuck it out as a group late into the night.
The next day, my friend Carmalene reported that 15 cop cars and vans showed up around 5am Wednesday, October 5. Police issued warnings and six citations to the remaining participants and were asked to move to the sidewalks until the park re-opened. At 6am, the group reconvened back inside the plaza.
We want the St. Louis Police Department to know that we are here for them too. We need allies on every level of the system....
Stay positive. There is lots of love and strength in this movement, and I am truly proud of my brothers and sisters.
