My poster design for the action at SF City Hall. I called up my friends Andrew and Jose to print some posters to give away in solidarity with the hunger strikers. These activities were called in the name of support the #frisco5 hunger strikers, who camped in front of the police station while they fasted for 17 days. The executions of Alex Nieto Amilcar Perez-Lopez, Luis Góngora and Mario Woods by SF PD prompted the hunger strike. They are calling for the ousting of Chief Suhr. But can we like abolish SFPD all together?
