“Stolen Lives” Families Demand Justice
Many families whose loved ones were murdered by police will gather with others to dramatically bring to life the humanity of those whose lives were stolen by law enforcement through reading the names, testimony, art and song. They will demand justice and call on everyone to join them in standing up to STOP POLICE MURDER, and for the indictment of all the murdering cops and those who covered up for them. All Stolen Lives families are invited and everyone who stands with them.
Protests will disrupt the evening rush hour, downtown State and Jackson
Wednesday, March 2, 12 noon- 2 pm
Thompson Center (State of Illinois Building), Clark and Randolph
Wednesday, March 2, 3 to 6 pm
Downtown Chicago: State and Jackson
This action will draw the line to challenge people from all walks of life — from the people most under the terror of the police, to people from the suburbs who feel this outrage is intolerable to take a stand: POLICE MURDER MUST STOP! WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON? There is no neutral. We cannot allow the police to continue to murder with impunity and get away with it with the approval and complicity of the institutions of so-called “justice.” Indict All the Murdering Cops and All those who have been part of the cover-ups and send them all to jail!
Everyone who is opposed to police murder can find a way to be part of this protest. People will gather at a central location downtown beginning at 3 pm. There will be one group of volunteers who will take non-violent direct action to disrupt rush hour. Hundreds of other people who choose not to take part in non-violent civil disobedience are needed to protest in support of and in conjunction with those who do.
