This is more than likely a State sanctioned act of violence similar to when the police would shoot up the offices of the Black Panther party! This shows how big of a threat young Black Queer Womyn who fight for the liberation of all marginalized and oppressed, poses to the State!
 
We send love to @AssataDaughters and ask that you contribute toward their rebuilding by making a donation to them.

This is an example of how the state responses with violence to radical organizing. From the bombing of MOVE house in Philly, to bombing Panther offices in Chicago.
 
Chicago owes a tremendous debt to Assata's Daughters. They've shown the best of our city by working to shine light on and eradicate the worst of it. Without them we might still have Rahm. Read this and donate if you can.
 
This is infuriating and heartbreaking, yet stands as a stark pattern of what it means to exist in the margins of Chicago. @AssataDaughters deserves more than our heartbreak though- We have to stand w/those who always stand for us. Support: assatasdaughters.org/donate-1
 
This is so painful to see. 💔 @AssataDaughters have been a strong guiding influence on so many young black and brown activists and have incredible organizing power here in Chicago. Donate here to support their rebuild efforts - assatasdaughters.org/donate-1

This is a horrifying act. Assata’s Daughters is an amazing organization, a fellowship. I’m so sorry their space was violated in this way, and that the city compounded the violence against them by bulldozing their Home.
 
 
 
In reply to @AssataDaughters
@AssataDaughters thankful for the beauty and growth this space brought this community. even more thankful that things like home, family, love, struggle, survival depend on our humanity, not on walls. for our people, this is a necessary and historically bonafide truth.
