“If this had been a Black-led effort, it would have been a massacre,” said Mara Vanderheyden, co-founder of the Partnership for Civil Justice, which is demanding a “fully public” investigation into United States Capitol Police collusion with the mob that assaulted Congress, last week. “We can only conclude that this could not have happened if the Capitol Police had not allowed it to happen.”

Ebony “Sima Lee” Outlaw, the activist and Marooncast host based in Baltimore, was inspired by “Black anarchists who very much wanted to end imperialism, but chose to do so through a non-hierarchical methodology, and not necessarily by the central command vanguardism” of the Black Panther Party.
