Some background & guidance:
This day of protest first began in 1997, at the initiative of the Black Flag collective in Switzerland. Citizens Against Police Brutality, from Montreal, Canada helped launch this international day of action. In 1997, over 50 groups from 14 countries participated in this event.
For the last two years, the International Day Against Police Brutality(IDAPB) has been a success. The groups that have participated in this event are critical of more than just police brutality: they also criticize white supremacy, genocide, patriarchy, hetrosexism, capitalism, the state, etc.
