PANA: Resistance to oppression is not new, neither is solidarity between Asian Americans and African Americans. Our solidarity is the power that will overthrow this system of white supremacist violence towards both of our peoples.
We also do not forget the killing of Tommy Le in 2017. The vicious policy of “kill first” and “qualified immunity” encourages many white supremacist police to kill oppressed people with no repurcussions.
What we need is the power of the people to have authority over police forces, including the ability to fire officers who have proven themselves to be a danger to society.
