Hear front-line reports from the day of action. Also, Penny Hess (Chair, African People's Solidarity Committee) and Jesse Nevel (Chair, Uhuru Solidarity) discuss the growing demand for the "defunding of police" and what this means in relationship to the struggle led by the African People's Socialist Party for black community control of the police.
