ALERT! Sunsara Taylor arrested at St. Patrick's Cathedral. DROP THE CHARGES!
Sunsara Taylor, initiator of End Porn and Patriarchy; the enslavement and degradation of women, and Alice Woodward, were arrested and held overnight in jail.
This action came at the end of 10 days of political protest in New York City, to Take Patriarchy by Storm. The message that women are full human beings, not sexual objects for the pleasure of men, not breeders, and capable of equality in every sphere, was brought across the city: inside a Hooters restaurant, into porn shops, and a “crisis pregnancy” center. Activists confronted the current political climate where people aren’t outraged by the subjugation of women.
Sunsara and Alice -- leaders in such a needed movement -- must be released now. Drop the charges!
- Write a statement to demand that charges be dropped. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be delivered to court by defense attorneys to be noted to the judge.
- Mon. Aug 13. 12 noon: Come to 100 Centre Street - outside courthouse. Demand: Drop all charges against Sunsara and Alice. Join us!
