No Justice! No Peace! We Demand Community Control of the Chicago Police!
Chicago –(ENEWSPF)—December 5, 2014. The Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression (CAARPR), and their Stop Police Crimes Campaign, is hosting a rally and petition drive on Saturday, December 6th from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM at 63rd St. and King Drive. CAARPR holds these events weekly as part of their effort to build support for establishing a Civilian Police Accountability Council in Chicago.
Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/597723333706603
The first hour of the event will feature a rally and speak out where families and loved ones of victims of police crimes will demand community control over the police and policing methods, and that police officers be held accountable for their crimes.
The rest of the group’s time will be spend doing outreach at the intersection, educating the public about the need for a Civilian Police Accountability Council, and collecting signatures for a petition supporting their draft legislation.
CAARPR, together with families of police crime victims, community organizations, and attorneys, has drafted a proposal for establishing a democratic, elected, Civilian Police Accountability Council in Chicago. Currently the legislation is fully drafted and support has been shown by several Alderman who may sponsor it.
Justice for Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Rekia Boyd, Charles Brown, Roshad Mckintosh, DeSean Pittman…for ALL police crime victims and survivors!
The Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression (CAARPR) was founded in 1973 as a local branch of the National Alliance, which grew out of the mass movement to Free Angela Davis and All Political Prisoners. From its inception the CAARPR has campaigned against police crimes committed primarily against the poor and people of color.
