PROTEST Trump’s Racist Dept of Justice
Jeff Sessions, exposed during confirmation proceedings for his racist actions and beliefs, is now the Attorney General. As head of the Dept. of Justice (DOJ), Sessions is the chief law enforcement officer in the U.S. He is opposed to the Voting Rights Act and to legislation protecting LGBTQ people and undocumented workers. Trump’s recent executive order gives Sessions free rein to enact the most racist andoppressive criminal legal policies. A license to unleash even more state violence against dissent, to criminalize the Black Lives Matter movement, the IndigenousPeoples’ movement at Standing Rock, the struggle for Immigrant rights and all progressive people’s movements.
On Jan 13, 2017 the DOJ released it’s damning report on the Chicago Police Dept (CPD), establishing an arsenal of facts proving CPD, the Mayor’s office, and City Hall to be racist, corrupt, and unwilling to hold the police accountable when they murder and brutalize Black and Latino communities. Sessions will deep-six the report as well as the many cases of police crimes filed by the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression.
WE HAVE TO PROTEST NOW – DOJ WE WON’T GO BACK!
