Chicago marches for justice for Eric Garner

Chicago, IL – Over 600 people marched here, Dec. 4, to protest the failure of a grand jury in New York to indict the cop who killed Eric Garner. Many signs at the march noted that Dec. 4, 1969, was the day the Chicago police assassinated Black Panther leaders Fred Hampton and Mark Clark. Frank Chapman of the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression states, “To stop police crimes, we have to end police control of Black and Latino communities.”

The march began in the Loop, seized Lake Shore Drive, and continued for over five hours.
