Nationwide opposition to the Chicago Police’s secret detention facility known as Homan Square is growing rapidly.
It was revealed last week that the CPD is using CIA-like tactics on suspected criminals and American dissidents — denying them of due process and basic rights.
Since then, a massive movement to shut down Homan Square has grown online and in Chicago, as well as around the country.
Several hundred concerned residents of Chicago brought Homan Square to a standstill over the weekend, and as many as 1,500 or more are expected to shut it down this coming Saturday. The event will take place at Homan Square at 12:00 pm CST. More info here.
Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, activists who are seeking justice over the LAPD’s violent slaying of a man known as Africa, are also holding a protest on Saturday at 12 pm PST at the LAPD headquarters. More info on that event can be found here.
