(Chicago, Illinois) –December 4, 2016 --The Annual International Revolutionary Day (IRD) commemorating the life of Chairman Fred Hampton of the Illinois Chapter Black Panther Party, and Defense Captain Mark Clark will begin 12:00 noon at 2337 W. Chairman Fred Hampton Way, formally known as Monroe and Western, with a silent vigil, speakers, solidarity statements and the POCC/BPPC Youth Troops. 

 At 2:00 pm join us at The Wall (Northeast Corner of Madison & California. From 4:00 pm until 10:00 pm at Swift Mansion located in the Southwest corner of 4500 S. Michigan Avenue, for the Panel, Food and Lessons on COINTELPRO with Professor Kelly Harris of Chicago State University and Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. of the Prisoners of Conscience Committee/Black Panther Party Cubs.

The Massacre on Monroe left in its aftermath, the assassination of twenty - one-year-old Chairman Fred Hampton, and twenty-two-year-old Defense Captain Mark Clark. As it was in life, it remains in legacy; the attack on the struggle for self-determination was deemed the number one threat to the internal security of the country by former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. The actual survivors of the 1969 Monroe Massacre will be convened.    

How was the Black Panther Party the number one threat to the internal security of the country? By providing the first Free Breakfast programs nationwide? By providing Free Medical clinics? By providing information to better the communities of poor people nationwide?
