Pride festival features MPD in repudiation of No Justice No Pride's message

Two years ago, No Justice No Pride blocked MPD, Lockheed-Martin, and Wells Fargo's contingents in the Capitol Pride parade. While negotiations and promises resulted and the lead contingents of the parade were real community groups this year, much of the core message has been ignored. MPD's "special Liason branch" was given a display position right at the entrance to the 2019 Capitol Pride festival. This is a direct repudiation of NJNP's "no cops at Pride" posture.
