Latest – live feed from Courier Journal 25th July 2020:
On Friday 76 people were arrested in Louisville, Kentucky, in a police clampdown on peaceful protests in the city.
Protesters had blocked an intersection and the police responded with mass arrests.
The move comes before a threatened clash between black militia group the NFAC (Not Fucking Around Coalition) and fascist Kentucky Three Percenters militia.
The NFAC which came to prominence on 4 July with an armed march in Georgia at a location at which KKK white supremacist terror group supporters regularly gather to pay homage.
That paramilitary parade was entirely peaceful but there is a danger of clashes today, assuming the Facebook posts from the far-right are not just so much hot air.
From their actions on Friday the police seem to be making a statement about whose side they will be on.
Given the long traditions of racism in the force, the black militia can expect little in the way of facilitation as they exercise their constitutional rights.
NFAC Louisville march to press justice for Breonna Taylor
No police officers has been charged for the cold bloodied killing of Breonna.
The avowed aim of today’s NFAC formation is to press for justice for Breonna Taylor, a black woman who worked as an emergency medical technician who was brutally murdered in her home by Louisville police.
The NFAC led by grandmaster Jay had originally intended to form-up at Central High School, where legendary boxer and activists Mohammed Ali went to school.
Those plans have since changed.
A police spokesperson says the NFAC militia will instead be assembling at Baxter Square Park at Jefferson Street and 11th and 12th streets at 12 noon and then march to Jefferson Square Park.
