SENATOR MARK KIRK REQUESTS ARREST OF EIGHTEEN THOUSAND CHICAGO, ILLINOIS CITIZENS
(Chicago), Illinois – 6/3/2013 – While Republican Senator Mark Kirk has called for the arrest of eighteen thousand citizens to feed the prison industrial complex, no efforts are being made to ensure that jobs are brought into Chicago. No efforts are being made to ensure that adequate health care is provided for citizens. Trauma units in the minority community are being closed at alarming numbers while public schools have already faced their demise.
In response to Illinois Senator Mark Kirk's issuance of a declaration to intensify the current toll taking war waged against the Black community, a declaration is issued under the commonly used guise of a so-called "war on gangs". We are calling upon the colonized communities within the city of Chicago specifically, to mobilize on June 3, 2013 at 11:00am in front of the senator's downtown office at 230 South Dearborn Street, Suite 3900 Chicago, Illinois 60604.
The clarion will sound to clearly state that, no matter what euphemisms are used by this system, the community will not silently sit back and become wiped out, incarcerated and massacred.
This is a mobilization against GENOCIDE.
