A rally to bring attention to the other side of the opioid crisis…

When you the words “Opioid Crisis” you probably think about tragic deaths from addiction.

But there is another side of this crisis —— the inability of many chronic pain patients to access the medication they need to function.

We are rallying to bring attention to chronic pain patient neglect.

Rally at City Council: The final #NoCopAcademy votes

Supporting Organizations: No Cop Academy

This is it y’all. This Wednesday, City Council will take the final votes to finalize approval and allow for construction to begin. We’re fighting to the end, and we are beyond proud of what we’ve built and won so far. It’s been almost 18 months and we’ve done so much, from stickers to sit-ins to mayoral endorsements. Still, City Council ignores our popular, city-wide demand for #NoCopAcademy. So let’s make sure they can’t ignore us and show up loud and clear.

🕘PRESS CONFERENCE: 9 am: https://www.facebook.com/events/1533533873444013/
🕘RALLY: 9 am – 2 pm
🕙CITY COUNCIL MEETING: 10 am

There are other major projects Rahm is pushing through City Council on Wednesday as well, so we will be there in solidarity with our friends from #HelloNoHilco & Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO) resisting the HilCo development poised for final approval, and others who have been working to #DelayTheTIF and stop the Lincoln Yards mega-development. Rahm is proving his commitment to corruption and racist displacement in his final days in City Hall.

We are working with Live Free Chicago during our Annual Human Rights Conference, where together we will demand for an office to save lives!

Rally and speakers will be asking City Council to step up and support the Chicago Office of Gun Violence Prevention to care for our communities and invest in saving lives by:
1. Creating an Office of Gun Violence Prevention (OGVP) using a public health approach
2. Allocating 50 million dollars to adequately staff the OGVP and provide resources to community-based organizations
3. Supporting a community-led process for the creation of a city-wide strategy to end gun violence.

This rally is our time to unite around the issues, and get ready to fight for the office this year.

Rally to oppose US Intervention and Coup in Venezuela

Not only did Washington openly engineer the attempted coup in Venezuela, they are now trying to salvage it from complete defeat with a story of sending “humanitarian aid” as a guise to instigate a war.
We must demand Washington respect Venezuela sovereignty and stay out of Venezuela. The corporate media here makes up fake news stories about starvation and chaos in Venezuela. It helps hide the fact that the OAS has recently voted that the only legitimate government in Venezuela is that of Nicolas Maduro. It helps to hide that the UN Security Council also recently voted the same way.
