Please join a mass protest on Saturday, August 29th, at noon, for a march from the Federal Building to City Hall for #BlackLivesMatter to demand that the City Council enact legislation to create citizen's oversight over police brutality.

The Chicago Police Department (CPD) has shot 400 people in the past eight years, but city officials have declared that only one of those shootings was unjustified. This is the strongest argument that the CPD requires community control.

Earlier Jon Burge a former Chicago Police Department detective and commander gained notoriety for torturing more than 200 suspects between 1972 and 1991 in order to force confessions.

We need an elected, civilian police accountability council.

-------- Organized by the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression. Supported by unions, churches, community organizations, and faith leaders.

-------- Please note the following argument:
A grave injustice is being done in our country by the law enforcement officers with impunity which results in criminalization of Blacks, Latinos, Poor people as well as Muslims.

Prophet, peace be upon him, used coalition building as a major strategy in his peace movement.

Blacks stand with Muslims on almost all causes. External Event Url
