TAKE TO THE STREETS
MONDAY, OCTOBER 22
October 22, 2018, the 23rd annual National Day of Protest to STOP Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation!
March and Rally: October 22, 2:30 pm Daley Plaza
(Washington & Dearborn in the Chicago Loop)
Police continue to brutalize and murder people, especially Black, Latino and Indigenous people. The system continues to almost always let brutal, murdering cops walk free. Now Donald Trump, and his keebler elf looking attorney general, Jeff Sessions, are saying ‘bring back Stop and Frisk’ and ‘courts should stop getting in the way of police trying to do their jobs,’ there will be more racial profiling and more police terror.
The conviction of the Chicago cop who murdered Laquan McDonald was a little taste of justice. But rivers of blood have been spilled by killer cops.
This must STOP, and it’s up to us to stop it. Laquan’s murderer got convicted because people took their refusal to put up with police getting away with murder into the streets; in Ferguson, in Baltimore, and all across the country, including in Chicago. Now is a time for those who have to live their lives under the guns and billy clubs of brutal, murdering cops to be joined by everybody who doesn’t want to live in a world where police get away with murder to join together to say: Police Terror Must STOP!
October 22 is the day to do this. It’s the National Day of Protest to STOP Police Brutality, Repression, and the Criminalization of a Generation. A day when those whose loved ones have been stolen from them by those sworn to protect and serve have a platform to speak of how the police have stolen the lives of their loved ones!; a day when others stand with them and call for this injustice to stop!
All out for October 22!
