#Frisco5 Hunger Strike Ends With Plans For General Strike On Monday

Five local protestors against police brutality ended a 17-day hunger strike last night, that had called for the resignation of Chief Greg Suhr of the San Francisco Police Department.

They were hospitalized on Friday, while dozens of supporters were arrested at a rally at City Hall the same day. 

As the city grapples with a series of police-related shootings, the "#Frisco5" and allied groups are escalating their efforts to change the SFPD with a general strike. They're encouraging everyone to skip work, school, and corporate-owned businesses, and instead rally at City Hall at 8am tomorrow morning
