In light of Friday’s police riot, subsequent requests to deploy federal troops to Chicago, and Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s pledge to cooperate with the Trump administration’s federal crackdown in Chicago, movement leaders are filing suit against the Chicago Police Department, Fraternal Order of Police, and the federal government to stop police violence.

This action come on the heels of a weekend in which police assaulted, gassed, hit with batons, tackled, and arrested Chicagoans for exercising what is our constitutional right to freedom of assembly. The amount of money our city and our Mayor spend on policing, to tear gas young people, as opposed to educating them, as opposed to offering our folks mental health resources, is the reflection of a city that desires to suppress democracy as opposed to walking towards the future and opposing white supremacy.
