Police in Puerto Rico and Chicago have a long record of abuse and corruption. They have been at the forefront of the persecution, censorship, and even assassination of activists and community organizers. Racist, sexist, ableist, anti-poor, trans/homophobic, and the list goes on… the police is a repressive tool that protects only the rich and their banks.
This past May Day in Puerto Rico’s Financial District they gassed children and elderly, beat protesters, and broke into people’s homes (without warrants) as a way to intimidate the movement against austerity.
Join us in front of Chicago’s Board of Trade this Monday to denounce these abuses and let the international bankers and financers know that the struggle against their dictatorship has no boundaries and that police will not stop us!
