Orlando Anarchists Drop Banner in Solidarity With Eric King

Anarchists in Orlando dropped a banner in solidarity with political prisoner Eric King, held captive by the state after attacking a Congress member’s office in solidarity with the Ferguson Uprising of 2014. King is serving out a 10-year sentence, and recently was found not guilty of assaulting a prison guard, which would have given him 20 years more.

Thousands of Students Across Florida Walk Out Against Don’t Say Gay Bill

Thousands of students across Florida walked out in a statewide mobilization against the Don’t Say Gay bill, which would ban discussion of LGBT+ issues in elementary schools and has passed through the state legislature.

High schools participated reaching from Seminole County to Flagler, with Riverview High, Freedom High, Gibbs High and many more present. In Tallahassee, students marched from their high schools to the Florida House, occupying the floors to condemn the bill’s passage.

Repression was also reported during the walkouts, with the lead organizer being suspended indefinitely by his school for passing out Pride flags.
