As part of the annual Wingnut Memorial Day Party In Memory of People Murdered by the State, we are starting an annual anti- police brutality march.


Bring banners, signs, drums, puppets, noise makers, musical instruments, etc. Especially anyone who wants to bring signs in memory of a particular person or persons who have been the victim of police brutality.

Folks with cameras, video cameras, etc. who want to help with Copwatch should get in touch ahead of time.

The march will leave the Wingnut around 7pm and go through Southern Barton Heights. The idea is to return to the Wingnut before dark.

Like all Wingnut events, this is all ages and sober.

And no worries, the march is not the end of the Memorial Day party, just a part of it.

The Wingnut will be hosting its second annual cookout In Memory of People Murdered by the State on Monday May 30th, 2011. Come on over from 12 til everyone goes to sleep.

Flipping the Patriotic Memorial Day on its head, using the day as a platform to discuss the reality of police and state oppression, this annual memorial brings together the community in Southern Barton Heights as well as the broader community of people concerned with state oppression.

This is a potluck event- bring a dish, non-alcoholic beverage, or something to throw on a grill to share.

We will be unveiling a new series of murals in celebration of Anarchist history.

Entertainment will be provided by many different musicians, if you want to play an ACOUSTIC set please let us know.
Please contact the Wingnut if you are interested in performing this day. wingnut_collective@yahoo.com

If anyone is interested in speaking or presenting on a particular instance of state or police oppression please let us know.

Other entertainment to include Know Your Rights Skits brought to you by Richmond Copwatch and more!

This event, like all Wingnut events is a sober, all ages event.
