With both sides issuing their own "End-all/Endgame" warnings, the NYPD planning for a massive Antifa anti-police rally today, January 31, 2020.
Days earlier, an Antifa-backed social media account shared a video of three masked individuals accompanied by a tweet that read: "The streets are ours. The trains our ours. The walls are ours. This moment is ours."
The minute-long video showing individuals vandalizing public property and jumping subway turnstiles, calls for supporters of the group to "meet up" and rally against law enforcement and transit fares.
"We encourage you to link up with your friends, your family, and think of the ways you can move in affinity to build and f— s— up on J31 all day long," an unidentified individual said, referencing Friday's date. (source)
In response to a warning issued by Antifa, the NYCPBA (New York City Police Benevolent Association issued one of their own.
"New Yorkers should pay close attention: this is true endgame of the anti-police movement, and end of all policing and destruction of public order. Our members have spent their careers — and in some cases giving their lives — to bring public safety back to NYC. We can't go backwards." (source)
Coupled with their official statement was the video of members of Antifa, clouded by half-face masks, hoodies, and distorted voices, encouraging people to link up with their friends, their family, and figure out ways to "f*** s*** up today… all day long", calling today "J31". (emphasis mine)
