From: Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression
Stop Police Crimes Campaign

Thousands of people from communities most affected by police murders and             other police crimes, together with unions and religious organizations will kick-off a mass march on Chicago City Hall demanding community control of police, Saturday, August 29, 2015 at Noon, beginning at the Federal Plaza, Adams and Dearborn.

The marchers are demanding that the Mayor and City Council pass an ordinance creating and empowering an all-elected Civilian Police Accountability Council (CPAC).  Organized by the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, the coalition for CPAC has gathered over 20,000 signatures on a petition demanding its passage.

Why?

Because over 120 people have been murdered by police in Chicago since 2007 and not a single officer has been held to account.

Because torture and coercion are still practiced by police to extract confessions from suspects.

Because over 100 Black men are still in prison after being tortured by Chicago Police.

Because the Independent Police Review Authority and the Chicago Police Board have never taken action against a police officer for an unjustified shooting.
