Chicago, IL - Over 200 people gathered in front of Chicago Police headquarters, Nov. 24, awaiting the verdict from the grand jury in the Michael Brown murder case. Frank Chapman, an organizer with the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, who spent some 14 years in prison for a murder he did not commit, addressed the crowd.

Chapman called upon fellow protesters to, “build a militant mass movement against police crimes.” The Alliance is currently building such mass movement for a Civilian Police Accountability Council in Chicago. The crowd was made up of mostly youth who echoed the call for ongoing protest until justice for Mike Brown has been won.
