Every single article listed is a a complete load of cuntish, whiny, libtarded bullshit. You stupid cocksuckers who think defunding and/or abolishing police agencies is smart should consider what you’ll do when you idiots start getting robbed and raped in the streets. You have to be the dumbest cunts on the planet.

Defend Black Lives - Defund Police Terror!

You don't need this newsletter to tell you about the massive outpouring of Black-led outrage, grieving and resistance in response to the racist police murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, against the backdrop of the terrible racist disparities in infections and deaths from COVID-19. Starting in Minneapolis and spreading swiftly to Los Angeles -- ground zero for racist police killings with impunity in the US despite decades of so-called reforms -- people took to the streets in disruptive and angry protests, and were met with renewed brutality and repression, teargas, rubber bullets and mass arrests. Over 3000 arrests for failure to disperse and curfew violations were made by the LAPD alone, not even counting separate arrests by the LA Sheriffs Dept and local cops in Santa Monica, Long Beach and elsewhere.

Some people were apparently more concerned about so-called "vandalism" and property destruction than about the taking of lives by the police. Civil unrest on this order of magnitude, particularly when met with provocative state violence as the peaceful protests have been, almost always results in some "vandalism" and "looting" (a racially charged word -- remember the differences in how Black and white people expropriating what they needed in New Orleans after Katrina were treated and referred to). 

But polls show that 54% of the US public believes that the burning down of the Minneapolis police precinct was a valid response to the situation. Property destruction is not the same as state violence; whereas property protection is always undergirded by state violence. People who vandalized or even burned police cars, the people who painted George Floyd's face and Black Lives Matter slogans on the statue of Robert E. Lee in Richmond VA, are heroic and exemplary to my way of thinking; their actions are righteous. Same goes for the people who lobbed tear gas cannisters back at the police. Did you see the gif of the Somali woman in a hijab doing exactly that in Minneapolis? Inspiring.

Here's a map of how widespread the protests have been and are continuing to be.

[d01d49a4-4bdc-4662-bdf6-82c11c41bf76]

The  map above also highlights in orange (appropriately) the 23 states where the National Guard has been called out.
But this has proven to be a problem in itself for the rulers - in Los Angeles, Guard troops took a knee with protesters in Hollywood when they were supposed to blocking further passage, and the marchers moved on to continue protesting.
The most significant aspect is that these massive, multi-racial, international, diverse, militant demonstrations have been Black-led, with millions of people moved to conscious anti-racist action and rejection of institutionalized and internalized racism and anti-Blackness.

LA's liberal political establishment, cop-lovers all, has totally exposed itself in this moment.  Thousand of people turned out to the #JackieLaceyMustGo vigil, back live at the Hall of Injustice, 211 W, Temple St, corner Spring, after 2 months in Instagram Live. Demand that members of the county Board of Supervisors rescind their endorsement of Lacey for re-election in November (she was denied election in the March primary and forced into a run-off in the fall through concerted opposition by families of people killed by law enforcement with impunity in LA County under her tenure as DA). And watch this expose of Mayor Garcetti and Chief of Police Moore-of-the-same:
 

%2Cwn

 
70,000 people watched a livestream on YouTube offered by KTLA of the first Police Commission (#LAPCFails) since the uprising, as hundreds of people spoke out to #FirePoliceChiefMoore and to #DefundThePolice. In response, Garcetti proposed to cut about $100 million from the LAPD budget to transfer to unspecified community programs in the Black community.
 
Here's my letter in response as printed in the LA Times:
 

https://www.latimes.com/opinion/story/2020-06-05/slashing-the-lapd-budget-protests
 
To the editor: Imagine how large the LAPD’s budget is if it can cut out $100 million without making too much of a dent. That’s only about 5% of its $1.86-billion 54% share of the city budget. (And the LAPD get other money besides, in federal grants, civil forfeitures, and from its contract with Metro to police the trains.)
 
The city’s offer of cuts should meet police abolitionists halfway on defunding the LAPD, still one of the deadliest police departments in the U.S. For starters, chop the budget in half (that would still be almost $1 billion wasted on policing).
 
Start cutting at the top — Chief Michel Moore must go. Sell the damaged police vehicles for scrap and don’t replace them. Shut down the predatory policing programs that criminalize poor black people for who they are.
 
Deal with social and economic problems such as homelessness with social workers and housing, not cops. Get police out of the schools and off the buses and trains, and put money into a reeducation program that finds them some meaningful and socially useful work to do. Fund community peacemakers.
 
Michael Novick, Los Angeles

RACIAL DISPARITIES IN COVID EXPOSE INSTITUTIONAL RACISM
Resistance to racist police murders with impunity is inextricable from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its disproportionate impact on Black, Brown and indigenous people. Even apart from the threat of police violence and the use of National Guard and even US military forces against them, protesters understood they were risking infection and death by going out into the street and close-quarters public demonstrations. Medical professional underlined that police use of teargas, which was widespread, increased the risk or infection and "super-spreader" events dramatically.
[a13bd9b1-a4c3-479e-b520-184db98d6135]
 
EXCERPT: A small community of volunteers, currently led by The Atlantic staff writer Alexis Madrigal, launched The COVID Tracking Project in an effort to aggregate and make sense of numerous and confusing data sources. It then partnered with the Antiracist Center to found The COVID Racial Data Tracker. “This outbreak will not affect everyone equally,” says Madrigal. “It is moving through [US] institutional structures and socioeconomic realities. The COVID Racial Data Tracker is really to track racism, not to track race.”
 
Indeed, predominately Black counties have experienced three times the infection rate and six times the deaths as predominately White counties during the virus’s initial wave, which hit big cities hard. In L.A., for example, Latinx people made up 44% of the population, but 65% of the deaths.
 
Many states are not reporting infections among Native Americans—whose history already includes being ravaged by infections, such as smallpox and tuberculosis, carried by Europeans. But what we do know looks grim. Though Native Americans make up just 6% of Arizona’s population, they account for 16% of the state’s deaths. In New Mexico, they comprise 11% of the population, but 31% of deaths.
 
[But though communities of color are facing greater impact, testing resources have gone elsewhere.] In mid-April, an analysis by the New York Post found that 3.8 out of every 100 residents of Staten Island had been tested, as compared to only 2.9 per 100 in the Bronx and 2.5 per 100 in Queens. Staten Island is 75% white; the Bronx and Queens consist primarily of people of color. 22 of the 30 ZIP codes where the greatest numbers of COVID tests were conducted were either Whiter or wealthier than the city as a whole.

The Murder of George Floyd: The Longest Running Play in America 

 

Submitted by editor on 01 June 2020 - 01:40pm

“The great evil of American slavery was not involuntary servitude, but rather the narrative of racial differences we created to legitimize slavery. Because we never dealt with that evil, I don't think slavery ended in 1865, it just evolved.” - Bryan Stevenson

Think of Derek Chauvin’s knee. The weight of it. The sadistic centuries-deep applied weight of it. Its brutality. Its power. Its ball-bearing-like, skull-like, stone-like shape. How the knee’s deadly utility must have given him such pleasure. How George Floyd’s pleas for life must have sharpened that pleasure. (Why else would he have crushed George’s life so slowly?) How this knee was his, personally, but also the blunt instrument of history, how it did the work his meaty hands could have done - strangling George Floyd. But to strangle George Floyd with his hands, he would have had to look him in the face. See his human face. The knee was a brutal coward’s knee.

What was Derek Chauvin thinking? Or in what part of his brain was he thinking? What reptilian brainstem part? Was he thinking in the same part as was the white sailor on a slave ship who chained Africans in the hold and refused them water as they died? Or the slave breaker, Edward Cove, who savagely beat the teenage Frederick Douglass for demanding the dignity of manhood? Or the grinning white Klan members as they hauled another struggling black man into a poplar tree by his neck, then lit a fire under him, then posed for photos? Was he thinking in the same part as were the mounted police in Selma while charging the peaceful Civil Rights marchers on the Edmund Pettus Bridge? Or the killers of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Tamir Rice, Laquan McDonald, Erik Garner, Breonna Taylor, Sandra Bland, Ahmaud Aubery, etc., etc., etc., etc.

Which is to say Derek Chauvin was not thinking at all. His knee was not thinking. Derek and his knee were playing their part in the same morality play being performed in America for 400 years. He knew his part in the longest running play in our history. No new lines to memorize. Every other day the curtain goes up on this play, staged in another city or town. The line of cops waiting to audition for leading roles stretches like a blue rope around the neck of this country. But who buys the tickets? Who fills the theater? Whose will is being asserted in this tedious, blood-curdling, repetitious, racist drama? What all those white supremacists in our family tree - from Jefferson, Madison and Washington to Donald J. Trump - fail to see is that any greatness in this country belongs to the people of color who have demanded that America live up to its own ideals: Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Frederick Douglass, John Brown (not Black, but might as well have been), W.E.B. Du Bois, Paul Robeson, Fannie Lou Hamer, Bob Moses, Claudette Colvin, Rosa Parks, Ella Baker, James Baldwin, Bayard Rustin, John Lewis, Malcolm X, Rev. King, Muhammad Ali, Langston Hughes, Charles Hamilton Houston, Rev. Wiliam Barber. Michelle Alexander, Bryan Stevenson - to name a few. What Derek Chauvin’s knee has failed to learn is that those people not only strove to save the humanity of people of color but the humanity white people, too. Or is that what his knee knows and resents so profoundly?

I, for one, am sick of this play. I want the theater shut down. bulldozed, buried. I’m sick of analyzing the persistence of racism in America. The simple fact of it has eaten my soul. I want every gratuitous murder of a black person answered with a life sentence for the killer. How can we defend the rule of law when the law is a racist murderer? How can we defend democracy when our democracy is a corporate plutocracy holding a noose? It’s not that I can’t breathe. It’s that I’m ashamed to breathe the racist air.

And what was George Floyd thinking? In his fear and pain and suffocation, he may not have been able to think at all. But if he was, it may have been the clarity of one thought that had haunted him for 46 years: finally American racism, like a drone missile, had found him.

One week ago, I watched fascism attempt to rear its ugly head, and I will never forget it.

Tonight I am proud of this generation of Americans, who answered the call of destiny with determination and grit (grit! from millenials!) when that awful video of police homicide hit the airwaves two weeks ago

Michael Winston

Business Executive : b. 1951

“I never thought of myself as a whistleblower. But what changed my life at Countrywide Financial Corporation? A two letter word...the word 'No'. I said, 'NO! No more fraud; no more predatory lending; no more insider trading: No, you can't do this, it's against the law. You are breaking the economy. No more!'”

In a now-deleted Facebook post, the Brevard County Fraternal Order of Police offered jobs to those who resigned from the Buffalo PD’s Emergency Response Team, touting lower taxes in Florida and “no spineless leadership, or dumb mayors rambling on at press conferences.” (The offer was also extended to the Atlanta officers who were caught on tape brutalizing two Black college students as they left a protest in late May.)

Retired FBI Agent: ‘No FBI Agent Has to Take a Knee’

The writer served 27 years in the FBI, 21 of them tactical with four SWAT teams and the HRT (Hostage Rescue Team). He retired in 2012.  He also served in Marines for eight years.   His commentary is in response to a report in ticklethewire.com that FBI agents in Washington recently took a knee at the urging of people protesting police brutality and the death of  George Floyd.

Dana Milbank: Bill Barr Was a Bully as a Kid, And Now As An Adult

 

http://ticklethewire.com/2020/06/10/dana-milbank-bill-barr-was-a-bully-as-a-kid-and-now-as-an-adult/

 

Get the feeling law enforcement in this country is being run by a middle-school bully?

If so, you are not wrong. Childhood bullies have a predisposition to become adult bullies, research shows, and, sure enough, it seems Attorney General William Barr was a teenage bully more than 50 years ago.

Back in 1991, during Barr’s confirmation to be George H.W. Bush’s attorney general, lawyer Jimmy Lohman, who overlapped with Barr at New York’s Horace Mann School and later Columbia University, wrote a piece for the little-known Florida Flambeau newspaper about Barr being “my very own high-school tormentor” — a “classic bully” and “power abuser” in the 1960s who “put the crunch on me every chance [he] got.”

THE ACTIVITIES OF THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION

 

 

 

    Over the last few years troubling allegations have been raised concerning the FBI. These allegations have been raised principally by Dr. Frederic Whitehurst, a supervisory special agent who works in the FBI lab. The numerous allegations that Dr. Whitehurst raised eventually resulted in an investigation by the Department of Justice's Inspector General. The results of that investigation were released just last month, and a 500-page report is the subject of today's hearing

 

    For example, in the case of United States versus Psinakis, the FBI explosives examiner reached the conclusion that tools found in the defendant's home contained residue of an explosive by relying in part on collateral evidence that was collected during a search of the defendant's garbage, rather than conducting appropriate scientific tests of the tools themselves. We specifically concluded that the examiner's work in the Psinakis case was inadequate and unprofessional.

 

    In the case involving the bombing of an Avianca Airlines jet, we determined that the FBI explosives examiner's testimony regarding the type of bomb used was based on a theory that was scientifically unsound and beyond the examiner's expertise.

 

    We found other instances of examiners giving inaccurate testimony. In a hearing conducted by the Investigating Committee of the Judicial Council of the Eleventh Circuit regarding then-judge Alcee Hastings, the lab examiner testified falsely that he had performed a certain scientific test, when in fact another examiner had performed the test, and he also testified inaccurately regarding the results and significance of the test.

 

    In a death penalty case in Florida, another examiner, who was the chief of the Chemistry-Toxicology Unit, testified inaccurately on several points, including testimony about tests he had performed or the results of those tests.

After the Lockdown, the Jailbreak

 

Submitted by editor on 10 June 2020 - 01:32pm

What's going on? We had lockdown; we've got jailbreak.

But the prisoners aren’t running away; they’re marching, chanting, getting rearrested for the cause of justice. They’re risking infection. In fact, they’re embracing a new infection: people power. Their risk is not in trying to reopen an economy but to rebirth social justice, racial justice, a just economy. Any regime, even a corrupt one, can create a burgeoning economy; only a democracy can build social justice.

What’s going on? America has  gagged on itself. Three more murders of innocent, unarmed Black people - Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and George Floyd.  Too much to swallow. The right response?  A great paroxysm,  a struggling, heaving effort to expel the gnarled mass of our indigestible hobgoblin history. Not easy. Every organ of the body politic is complicit, bound into systems of wealth and labor exploitation, racial oppression, environmental desecration, militarism,  freedom of giant corporations to engineer a society for their own benefit.  Time to regurgitate,  turn ourselves inside out. 

What’s going on? It’s not the coronavirus lockdown that’s being challenged now. It’s 400 years of lockdown in hypocrisy.  No matter who you are, what color you are, what ethnicity, winner or loser, perpetrator or victim, we all have been trapped in the same history - unable to fully admit it, unable to break free of it. The exalted claims of this history habitually insult its reality. For native people, black people, all people of color, all the marginalized - finally a reckoning.

What’s going on?  The campaign for president is not assaulting us with billion dollar ads, dark money PACs, talking points, talking heads,  and spin doctors.  Not being run by manipulation and bullshit. The campaign is being waged by the people in the streets - exuberant, raw, messy. Not mail-in ballots, but march in. If there’s finally an effective antidote to cynicism, it’s people in the streets. Many politicians are in denial, trying to shut it down (How dare the people direct their own country!), or they are trotting along behind, hoping to catch up with the right message. Even the opportunists, the provocateurs of both the left and the right, are not able to derail the  people’s will of love and anger, grief and hope, resistance and redirection. 

What’s going on? Extreme times produce extreme situations. We see a contemporary version of lions lying down with the lambs - the cops kneeling with the protesters. Looks like compassion and understanding. Yes, but it’s also power being reconfigured.  And have we ever seen anything more strange, more ludicrous or pathetic, than the Devil holding up the Bible to justify God-given authority for using violence against peaceful demonstrators? (Even stranger would be this same Devil laying his right hand on the Bible and swearing to tell the truth.)  But hasn’t that image - the Devil with his Bible - always haunted this country? Isn’t that the trope Trump was channeling?  White supremacy holding up the Bible to justify slavery, lynching and Jim Crow; men holding up the Bible to justify dominating women; corporations holding up the Bible to sanctify the destruction of nature; creationists holding up the Bible to disprove evolutionary science; militarists holding up the Bible proclaiming that God loves war; prigs holding up the Bible to command sexual conformity. We can be damn sure our current Devil has never read any further into the Bible  than the KKK’s Grand Dragon has read into the Declaration of Independence.

I was a young activist in the 1960's, marching, protesting, committing civil disobedience in the struggle for civil rights and ending the Vietnam War. But I’ve never seen the sudden vibrancy nor persistent urgency of this moment. A perfect storm: Trump, appalling racist murders, 110,000 COVID-19 deaths and  all the inequalities the pandemic exposes, failure to act on the climate crisis, Mitch McConnell, a handful of billionaires having more wealth than the rest of the country combined, the stock market rising while millions suffer and lose their jobs, a government refusing to solve problems so it can play off the divisions it causes.

So what’s going on? Where there’s a vacuum of wisdom, compassion, decency, justice,  equality, care and honesty, the people flood in.

The Solidarity Trial is a WHO-led conglomeration of many national trials of treatments for Covid-19.

As of 3 June 2020, more than 3500 patients have been recruited in 35 countries, with over 400 hospitals actively recruiting patients. Overall, over 100 countries have joined or expressed an interest in joining the trial, and WHO is actively supporting 60 of them...

The hydroxychloroquine arm has been reinstated, after being halted  May 25 by WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros and the Executive Group of the Solidarity Trial. (This action was performed, allegedly on the basis of the Lancet Surgisphere study, which exploded when no one could verify that the Surgisphere database existed).  It was reinstated on June 3.

 

Below are the drugs being tested in Solidarity.

 

●       Remdesivir

●       Hydroxychloroquine

●       Lopinavir with Ritonavir

●       Lopinavir with Ritonavir plus Interferon beta-1a.

 

However, doses were not specified on WHO's list of the drugs to be trialed, nor were the doses specified, surprisingly, in WHO's consultation on chloroquine dosing, dated April 8.

 

Last week, I was alerted to the fact that India's ICMR, its official medical research agency, had writtento the WHO, telling WHO that the hydroxychloroquine doses being used in the Solidarity trial were 4 times higher than the doses being used in India.  Then I learned that Singapore has been hesitant to participate in the WHO trial, due to the hydroxychloroquine dose.

 

The UK "Recovery" trial was one part of the international Solidarity conglomeration of clinical trials.  Its Study Protocol notes it is funded in part by the Wellcome Trust and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and by UK government agencies.  It further provides the doses of hydroxychloroquine used, on page 22.  This specified the precise dose used, which I could not find anywhere on the WHO website.  

 

However, Co-Principal Investigators of Recovery, Drs. Peter Horby and Martin Landray, Oxford professors, claimed they followed WHO dosing.  Landray also told Paris Soir he was using the same dose used for amebiasis.  However, the accepted HCQ amebiasis dose is used only in liver abscess and only then in pregnancy, when other drugs cannot be used.  That dose is 600 mg per day for 2 days, then 300 mg per day.

 

Here is the Recovery dose:  800mg of HCQ initial dose, 800 mg six hours later, 400 mg 6 hrs later, 400 mg 6 hours later, then 400 mg every 12 hours for a total of ten days' treatment.

 

This equates to 2400 mg HCQ in the first 24 hours, and a total of 9200 mg over the full ten days of use.  

 

We also know, from an official Belgian document issued June 8 about their trial, that high doses were used not only by Recovery in the UK, but also by the Discovery trial in the EU and by the WHO.

 

We also know that in Brazil, a high dose and a low dose were trialed, and after 8 days the high dose arm was stopped due to an excess of deaths.  The low dose trial continues in Brazil.

 

We also know that the UK Recovery HCQ trial ended earlier than the other arms of the trial, on JUne 5, when it was reported that there was no benefit for HCQ in over 1500 hospitalized patients, who had a crude in-hospital mortality of 25%.

 

How is the drug normally used?  For chronic systemic lupus or rheumatoid arthritis the dose is usually between 200 and 400 mg daily.  In acute Q fever 600 mg daily may be given early in treatment.

 

We also know from WHO's consultation on chloroquine dosing that the Gates Foundation had been studying dosing, and 5 of the 26 people at the WHO meeting where it was decided to add chlorquines to the Solidarity treatment protocol were from the Gates Foundation.  The only treatment dose mentioned in their report was in a paragraph about preventive doses.  It then said, "Higher doses would be considered for treatment, i.e., 10mg/kg base, followed by 5mg/kg twice daily for seven days." 

 

What is the "base"?  A 200 mg dose of chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine contains 155 mg "base"drug.

 

The typical 70 kg person would therefore receive 700 mg base or a little less than 900 mg of the drug as a loading dose.

Generally, a loading dose refers only to a first dose, not to several additional doses within 24 hours, but it can potentially refer to more.

 

One of four who participated in the chloroquine dosing meeting were from the Gates Foundation.

 

What is a toxic dose?  All experts agree that there is a narrow therapeutic to toxic window for this drug.  It is very safe when used correctly in the right patients, but just a bit more can potentially kill.  Prof. Nicholas White, who attended the first WHO consultation on chloroquines, mentioned this.

 

The WHO hired a consultant to explore the toxicity of hydroxychloroquine in 1979.  I have reproduced the report cover below.  The consultant, H. Weniger, looked at 335 episodes of poisoning.  Weniger concluded that "1.5-2 grams of hydroxychloroquine base "may be fatal."  The Recovery trial used 1.860 mg base in the first 24 hours, for treatment of very ill Covid-19 patients.  A potentially lethal dose.

 

This dose is not considered a therapeutic dose in any of the literature I examined, including the Goodman and Gilman Pharmacology book 10th edition, the drug label, the online medical encyclopedia UptoDate.

 

The WHO Solidarity trials, in order to rapidly enroll patients without a lot of paperwork, collect only limited information on side effects.  Recovery has not issued any informatin regarding cause of death, so far, in the patients in its HCQ arm, nearly 400 of whom have died.

We have a new podcast! Check out our brand new "Still Spying Podcast" hosted by Chip Gibbons today!

 

 

when you think of the FBI do you think of a federal law enforcement agency? Or do you think of a secretive domestic intelligence agency that has for over a century continuously spied on dissent?

 

 

 

We invite you to join DRAD Policy Director Chip Gibbons as he hosts our new Still Spying Podcast, which explores the FBI’s continuing First Amendment abuse. In addition to being our policy director, Chip is a noted FBI expert, journalist, and commentator. His writings on the FBI have appeared in The Intercept, Washington Post, and The Nation. 

 

 

Our podcast builds on our groundbreaking report titled Still Spying on Dissent: The Enduring Problem of FBI First Amendment Abuse, which documented a century of FBI spying and contextualized it in the larger history of the Bureau. 

 

In this new limited series podcast, Chip will be joined in conversation by experts and activists and will explore everything from the failure to reform the FBI, the FBI’s own war on Black dissent, the FBI’s dual role as both law enforcement and intelligence, and how the issue of political surveillance fits into larger discussions about policing. 

 

Our debut episode, “Legacy of Abuse: From The Palmer Raids to Black Identity Extremism,” is available now and features a conversation with Mike German, retired FBI agent, a fellow in the Brennan Center for Justice's Liberty and National Security program, and the author of Disrupt, Discredit, and Divide: How the New FBI Damages Democracy.

 

You can find it here or wherever you get your favorite podcasts

The Politics of Contraband (from Gangster Planet)

Gangster_Planet_logoTest-280x420-1.png

On June 17, 2019, a massive 20-ton cocaine bust went down at the port of Philadelphia aboard a container ship calling at the port.  Today is the one-year anniversary of that drug bust, the second largest in American history, and one of five covered in “Gangster Planet.”

Agents from a multi-agency Federal task force swarmed aboard a two block-long container ship called the MSC GAYANE, the second largest in the world.

The official story of the massive drug seizure—which is simple, but wrong—has the task force stumble onto a massive drug shipment on the container ship as it entered the port of Philadelphia.

However, the story contains more anomalies than a YouTube video about Area 51.  Even worse is that everything about the ‘Big Big Blow Bust’ remains highly classified

Maine has nation’s worst COVID-19 racial disparity

No other state has such a wide gap – more than 25 percentage points – between the size of the Black population and that community's share of infections.

Subject: indefensible and repressive laws--help with a tiny step that can help get many people released?

 

 

 

Hi friends,

 

 

 

The Chicago 400 are people who are on public conviction registries and homeless and therefore must register weekly at Chicago Police. (There are 400-500 people homeless in this situation, and 80% are Black men.) 

 

The letter below articulates the alarming impact of registries and residency restrictions, especially on Black men in Chicago, and how under COVID, these policies especially endanger poor African-American communities. We presented this information earlier this year to legislators. We hope they will be ready to act now, as the situation is so dire.

 

 

 

Could any of your organizations help with the pressure by signing the letter? 

 

This very minor change we request could truly help 1,000 get out of prison and another 300 people get housed (at no cost). The IDOC needs and wants to get people out. We just need more support to make it happen. 

 

If national groups sign, it will also allow more local groups to do so. The laws are repressive and indefensible and we need more people to say so.  

 

Thanks eternally to so many friends here for helping develop this work. All thoughts and ideas most welcome. The letter will be sent next week to coincide with a short radio story.

 

Laurie Jo

 

 

 

MORE INFO:

 

CHICAGO 400 / CHICAGO 400 ALLIANCE

Chicago 400 / Chicago 400 Alliance is a volunteer grassroots campaign working to roll back housing banishment and registry laws and call for police reforms. We are also focusing attention on the 1,400 people stuck inside prison past their release dates only because they have no housing—when they are released, they will be homeless too.

 

Chicago 400 are people who are on public conviction registries and homeless and therefore must register weekly at Chicago Police. The individuals and organizations working together to provide direct aid and policy support are the Chicago 400 Alliance.

Together we have a campaign—because we can’t let our elected officials just throw all these lives away.

 

LETTER 

Organizations are pitching in on a joint letter to describe the alarming impact of residency restrictions, disproportionately falling on Black men in Illinois. The two proposed reforms would help 1,000 people be released from IDOC in a short time and cut by hundreds the number of people who are literally homeless in Chicago. Letter here.

 

NOTE ABOUT THIS VERSION

We are still footnoting the data in this letter. We will send you the final along with any follow-up.
