On this year's International Working Women's Day in Austin, Texas, women activists and community members were holding a procession in honor of Veneranda Martinez and other victims of sexist violence when they were targeted for a mass arrest by Austin Police Department. Over two dozen people were taken into custody.

The procession was moving without incident on Montopolis Dr. in East Austin when APD began to kettle and brutally arrest people. Austin police don't want anyone to exercise Democratic rights to assemble or demonstrate, especially revolutionary women fighting for a better world!

They even brutally arrested photographers who were standing on the sidewalk taking pictures.

The Austin police didn't protect Veneranda, just as they don't protect the working class or revolutionary activists.

These brave marchers need as much support as possible, as they will face financial burdens for legal costs and possible loss of work.

En el Dia Internacional de la Mujer Trabajadora de este año en Austin, Tejas, mujeres activistas y miembros de la comunidad formaron un procesion en honor de Veneranda Martínez y otras víctimas de violencia sexual cuando fueron dirigido por arrestos masivos por APD. Más de dos docenas de personas fueron tomado en custodia. 

La procesión transcurrió sin incidente en Montopolis Dr. en el este de Austin hasta que APD empezó a rodear y brutalmente arrestar a la gente.  La policía de Austin no quiere que la gente ejercer los derechos democráticos para reunir o demostrar, y menos las mujeres revolucionarias que luchan para un mundo mejor.

También brutalmente arrestaron a fotógrafos que estaban en la acera tomando fotos. 

La policía de Austin no protegió a Veneranda, así como no protegen a la gente trabajadora o activistas revolucionarios. 

Estos valientes marchistas necesitan todo el apoyo posible, porque van a soportar cargas financieras de los costos legales y posible pérdida de trabajo.
