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.
See Facebook event and statements by Gloria Pinex, mother of Darius Pinex killed by CPD, and Janet Cooksey, mother of Quintonio LeGrier, killed by CPD.
 
Urgent alert: The State of Illinois building refuses to grant a permit for the noon indoor rally by the families of victims of police murder on March 2. Acrobats can perform indoors, but these courageous families cannot speak? No!
Please contact the IL Dept. of Central Management Services Representative Jennifer Haley & Wilma Wilbon, Special Events Director,Wilma.Wilbon@illinois.gov and 312-814-6676 and urge them to approve this permit. These families should be given a permitted space indoors to demand justice on March 2!

Stop Police Terror - Which Side Are YOU On? 
No Business As Usual As Long As Murdering Police Walk Free 
Protests will disrupt the evening rush hour. This action has been announced publicly well in advance, it is controversial. It is meant to 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! Organize friends, people from your school and church, your workplace and neighborhood. Join the Facebook event hereand spread the word!

Statement from the RCP, Chicago branch
Police Murder and Terror Must Stop Now
We Need a Whole New World
We Need Revolution, Nothing Less
Get Ready for a Time When Millions Can Be Led to Go for Revolution, All-Out, with a Real Chance to Win
