Chicago Protesters March on Black Friday

Protesters are expected to descend on Michigan Avenue on Black Friday, with marchers scheduled to walk up the major shopping strip in Chicago in response to the release of the dash-cam video showing the fatal shooting of Laquan McDonald by a Chicago police officer. The demonstration, organized by Rev. Jesse Jackson and several community activists and church leaders, is scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday. It will begin at Michigan and Wacker and proceed up to Water Tower Place. The purpose of the Black Friday protest is to bring the attention of the world to Chicago and to call for change via "mass demonstrations" and voter registration, Jackson said. "It's not enough to focus on what brought us here today, the execution of this young man (Laquan McDonald)," Jackson said. "That takes the scab off a deeper sore, a deeper cancer. So we want mass demonstrations, mass voter registration." Read »
