Minneapolis, MN – A solidarity rally demanding justice for Laquan McDonald has been called for Sept. 5, at 6 p.m. on Broadway and Fremont Avenues in north Minneapolis.

According to the Twin Cities Coalition 4 Justice 4 Jamar, which is organizing the event, “The Chicago trial for killer-cop Jason Van Dyke starts Sept. 5. He shot young Laquan 16 times in 2014. Mayor Rahm Emanuel led the cover-up of this crime, but the protests and demands of the people exposed the murder. This trial is one of the few times that a white cop is facing first-degree murder charges for killing a Black child. While we can’t expect it from the racist U.S. and Chicago systems, we can keep demanding justice.”
