We are sounding the alarm on an emergency situation. The Trump/Pence regime is seizing on the horror of young Black people killing each other, as well as people caught in the cross fire, to make Chicago ground zero in their overall assault on Black people. Trump’s attorney general Sessions has already said that he will not enforce the scathing, year in the making DOJ report about racist police brutal practices issued January 2017!
Draconian plans are being floated, like the one from Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass which calls for federalizing the National Guard, blocking off whole communities like greater Englewood with concrete barriers and guardsmen to imprison the area and then flooding it with cops.
Say NO to Trump’s threats to Chicago—NO to a reign of terror in our communities on top of the hell already enforced in them; NO to attempts to entice people into becoming enforcers of this program, NO to attempts to buy people off with promises of a few jobs and maybe some blood money; and NO to further gutting of the public schools!
We will fight for a future for our youth!
