Chicago Press Conference, August 18

August 24, 2014 | Revolution Newspaper |


A press conference in downtown Chicago denounced the police murder of Michael Brown and the vicious suppression of people's righteous protest. Gregory Koger, a revolutionary communist and former prisoner who spent many years in solitary confinement, and who had just returned from Ferguson, spoke and said he was honored to have been in the streets of Ferguson, standing with the defiant youth to demand justice in the face of the brutal police repression. Tio Hardiman, executive director of Violence Interrupters, Inc., also spoke and saluted the youth in Ferguson. The press conference was attended by most of the local TV stations in Chicago. After the press conference and a short rally, people marched through downtown at rush hour and received enthusiastic support from the crowds in the street.
