Organizers Disrupt NFL Draft Town #SaveCSU #DontPayDante - MEDIA ALERT -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Who: Assata’s Daughters, Black Lives Matter: Chicago, fierce femmes of FLY
What: Organizers are shutting down an intersection, disrupting NFL Draft Town
Where: Jackson and Lake Shore Drive
HAPPENING NOW: Organizers from Assata's Daughters,
Black Lives Matter: Chicago, and the fierce femmes of F.L.Y. are
shutting down the intersection at Jackson and Lake Shore Drive,
disrupting the NFL Draft Town.
Watch Live on Ustream:
Chicago 4/30, 12:30PM -- Yesterday, 300 community
members were laid off from Chicago State University due to lack of full
funding for the university. Meanwhile, Dante Servin remains employed by
the Chicago Police Department four years after murdering 22-year-old
Black woman Rekia Boyd.
Decision makers at the local and state levels have made
it clear where their financial priorities lie. We continue to receive
cuts to the institutions that keep Black women safe--institutions that
continue to be replaced by terrorist cops who brutalize and murder Black
women without penalty.
Dante Servin murdered Rekia Boyd because he felt he
could. Lawmakers refuse to give CSU the funding it needs because they
feel there will be no repercussions.
Our continued resistance serves as the penalty for
destroying Black Lives. There will be no uninterrupted NFL Draft Town
when Black women die without justice. There will be no silence while
Mayor Emanuel and the city council are cutting a $302,000 deal for an
event worth $3.2 million at the same time that we cannot afford to fund
Black education.
We choose to #RememberRekia by demanding that Dante
Servin be fired without a pension and instead that decision makers
commit full, permanent funding to Chicago State University.
