Do not listen to what the news is telling you about the protests in Tampa today! Today we were shot at. It was a non violent protest. They cops came out in full riot gear. The BLM organizers called for all the white people to the front so Mina and I went up to shield our black comrades. We were face to face with riot geared up cops. Everyone took a knee to peacefully protest and that’s when they took their guns out and started shooting rubber bullets at us and throwing tear gas. We ran and grabbed people out of the way. They shot at people sitting in a cemetery.
There was no looting. There was no destruction of property. This was a peaceful protest. We were at the front lines. This was a peaceful protest.
