Abolition May

Abolition May is a Turtle Island (aka North America)-wide coalition organized around action during May 2021 to demand the abolition of pigs (aka police) from campuses and from Earth. Days of action include May 3 - a day of refusal, and regional and local days of action, culminating on May 25 in a commemoration of the anniversary of George Floyd's death. A specific day of action in Kumeyaay Territory (aka the Tijuana/San Diego region) will be announced soon.

Monday, May 3  is Transnational Day of Refusal. "A coalition of campaigns across Turtle Island, from the east coast to the west and in between, ask you to honor a picket line by absenting yourself from class and otherwise withholding your labor in support of the demand to abolish all campus police. Honoring the picket line could mean: Joining the picket line on your campus // Canceling or refusing to attend a synchronous class // Refusing to watch asynchronous lectures // Refusing to pre-record a class or prepare other materials for later asynchronous use // Refusing to engage in other forms of university-based labor, including email response // Protecting any students, colleagues, and workers from retaliation // Attending a regional walkout action."
