BANNED FROM THE BUD BILLIKEN PARADE!
Are they afraid of the power of the people?
After years of peaceful participation in the parade, the Chicago Alliance Against Racist & Political Repression has been excluded from the Parade. We have been carrying the educational message of the need for an all elected Civilian Police Accountability Council (CPAC). Community members along the parade route have responded with great enthusiasm and cheers to our message of community empowerment in years past.
This is a politically motivated attack on the entire Black Lives Matter movement.
But the movement for community control of the police will not be silenced. We will be standing tall in Washington Park celebrating the communities of Chicago and the fight for justice—for a radical systemic change. NO to fake police reform, NO to old & new APPOINTED police oversight bodies that will continue business as usual. YES to an all elected CPAC.
Come join us for a people’s music fest with the brilliant Elephant Rebellion and guests (more details soon) Come join us for #CPACNOW #CPACinDaPark
