Stop the Violence March: Drop the Charges! Expand Trauma Care!

By Fearless Leading by the Youth (F.L.Y)

On Jan 27 four people, including a University of Chicago student, an alumnus, a community member and a high school student were brutally arrested by the University of Chicago police for peacefully protesting for the expansion of trauma care on the south side. This violence against protesters is the same violence committed by the University Hospital which ignores the community demanding it care for them. We will march to stop this violence. With this march happening four days before the court hearing of those arrested on 27 Jan, it is more urgent than ever.

Please join us to demand that the University of Chicago DROP THE CHARGES and EXPAND SOUTHSIDE TRAUMA CARE!

We will meet at 60th and cottage Grove at 12:30. We will march to the hospital at 58th and Maryland to demand that they expand critically needed Trauma care, than we will proceed to President Zimmer’s house at 59th and University, where we will demand that the University drop the charges.
