A Letter from the Editors: We Support the Uprisings
The Princeton Progressive voiced its unequivocal support for the protests that followed the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Oluwatoyin Salau, and so many others. The editors pledged to make Black Liberation a continuing editorial commitment, and not merely a passing issue. They explicitly recognized the fundamental intertwining of capitalism and racism, as well as policing’s role in protecting capital’s interest. The editors called for a total defunding and disbanding of the police.
