Coyote is a local comrade and disabled person of color soon to be incarcerated for felony assault this February. During Lakefair 2015 Acabo defended a comrade as she was being assaulted by a white inebriated vigilante attempting to squash the ongoing Black Lives Matter protest. For this Acabo must serve time and pay significant court fees while his partner cares for their children solo on half the income. The state’s greatest weapons against us are the costly isolation of incarceration, as well as the theft of beloveds from children, family, and community. We must block the state’s efforts to punish resistance and support Coyote and his family through the hard times to come.
