Minneapolice

RLM made this poster in 2015 after the police murder of Jamar Clark, across town from our studio in Minneapolis.  In response, black activists and allies occupied the street outside the nearby MPD 4th precinct for nearly three weeks. The occupation built momentum towards the police abolition movement which surged after the 2020 murder of George Floyd and subsequent destruction of the 3rd precinct.

Minneapolis has a long history of police brutality and police killings to this day.  The victims tend to be black residents and other people of color.  While the city has a reputation among well-off whites as progressive, the track record of its police behavior shows otherwise.

In 2021 we updated the text on this poster with the names of some of those murdered or assassinated by police in Minneapolis in the years since Jamar Clark: Justine Damond, Thurman Blevins, Travis Jordan, Chiasher Vue, Mario Benjamin, George Floyd, Dolal Idd, Winston Smith. We remember them.
