Des Moines Black Liberation Movement (Black Lives Matter) is organizing a protest for Saturday evening (June 5) with the tagline “Take it to the streets & f*ck the police.”

The location of the protest isn’t going to drop until 3 p.m. Saturday.

There are very few details or other descriptions. The event is billed as “School is back in session.”

“DSM BLM: Summer School Kickoff”

You can see some of the common taglines:

“No Justice, No Peace”

“Fuck 12”

“Abolish the Police”

Also notice, despite Des Moines removing its mask mandate, the event is still requiring attendees to wear masks.
