Just after 7:30 pm five members of the Spirit of the Sit-in Movement Initiative were arrested for occupying the seats of Greensboro City Council. You can read more on our home page.
The Spirit of the Sit-in Movement Initiative has spoken at the last four City Council meetings. We have been meeting weekly to educate ourselves and prepare the next steps. On April 27th we created a Facebook group to network better with other students.
We are planning a rally for police accountability for May 5th at 3 p.m. in front of the Melvin Municipal Office Building (where City Council and the Police Department are located) at 200 W. Washington St. downtown Greensboro. Meet by the police statue.
