Who is Holly Zoller and who funded the U-Haul full of riot gear in Louisville? Internet says, ‘arrest them’
When Zoller was confronted by an anonymous caller about posts on social media surrounding the 'abolish the police' signs on the truck, she responded saying it was her 'First Amendment right'
A truck belonging to the American moving equipment and storage rental company U-Haul was caught on camera on September 23, distributing riot supplies in Louisville, following the announcement that none of the six officers involved in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor would be charged. According to reports, the pre-parked vehicle was loaded with shields painted with anti-police messages, gas masks and other supplies used in the riots. In the reports that came in later, Holly Zoller, a member of the Bail Project was identified as the driver of the truck.
In a phone call with an anonymous citizen, who was pretending to be an employee of the rental company, Zoller has confirmed that it was her in the truck distributing the supplies.
Who is funding the U-Haul?
When Zoller was confronted by the anonymous caller about posts on social media surrounding the “abolish the police” signs on the truck, she responded saying it was her “First Amendment right”. According to National File, she reportedly said, “What does it matter what I posted on a sign?” She further denied protesting and said that she only “drove the U-Haul truck and dropped items off.” Zoller refused to answer any more questions.
Although Zoller denied any sort of involvement in the protests, a significant number of people online are seen questioning The Bail Project for allegedly funding the U-Haul. National File claims The Bail Project reportedly has ties with billionaire investor George Soros, who is also the founder of the Open Society Foundation. Meanwhile, the Bail Project opposes cash bail and reportedly claims that “paying bail for those in jail is an “act of resistance against a system that criminalizes race and poverty”
Who is Holly Zoller?
According to the Bail Project official website, Zoller “is the founding organizer and board member of Louisville Books to Prisoners, a nonprofit organization aimed at putting books into the hands of people living behind bars.” It also states that she coordinates volunteers for Food Not Bombs, “a group that provides fresh and shelf-stable food to a community in the center of Louisville’s food desert and has organized around anti-fascist movements.” Before joining the Bail project, she owned a gardening company.
The reports surrounding Zoller's involvement in the distribution of riot supplies using U-Haul has led to people on the Internet to severely criticize her for her actions, with many expressing concerns over the situation in Louisville due to the riots and protests. One tweeted alleging she was a Soros employee (it has not been verified in any manner), "Soros' employee left fully-stocked u-haul in Louisville, KY, for domestic terrorist gangs to use against the police. What will it take 4 U to arrest funders of terrorism who R destroying our country?" While another added, "No doubt! it was planned all the way down to the u-haul full of riot gear". And one user noted, "The person who brought in the u-haul with the riot gear should be charged as an accessory to attempted murder on these police officers who were shot. There must be justice for our police officers everywhere."
