Hosted by Black Lives Matter Chicago and Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression

Justice for Harith “Snoop” Rally

71st and Jeffery, Chicago, 6 P.M. 

No justice, no peace!
Come out Monday at 6 to demand justice for Harith “Snoop” Augustus. He was shot and killed in South Shore. he was a barber, beloved community member, and father of a 5 year old daughter. He was shot 7 times in the back because officers said he was “exhibiting the characteristics of an armed man”

When people began to protest at the scene on 71st and Jeffrey, CPD responded by aggressively pushing the crowd. They jumped their own barricades to beat protesters with batons. There were 100 police officers using full force against peaceful demonstrators. People were shoved and attacked, and some people were arrested. Check out this twitter thread from Nader Issa, Suntimes Reporter, for videos and pics from Saturday night: https://twitter.com/naderdissa/status/1018284580250488832?s=21

We demand:
-the release of the officer’s name
-her immediate arrest
-the release of the names of all officers that attacked protesters last night and their arrest
-drop the charges against all protesters
#CPACNow!
