The No More Stolen Lives Tour aims to bring the reality of murder by police to college campuses, directly posing the question to students, “Which Side Are You On?”—and calling on them to build for the tour and to take a stand in April by most urgently organizing a national student strike to stop police terror that will send a call to students throughout society to play a crucial role in being a part of putting a stop to this genocide.Read more
Chicago police attacked a peaceful protest on State Street this afternoon, throwing participants to the pavement, arresting four people and sending one to the hospital. The March 2 "No Business as Usual as Long as Murdering Police Walk Free" protest was viciously attacked by police moments after it began. (See WGN Channel 9 video.)
Families of people killed in police shootings gather to remember the victims and to demand justice at this event hosted by Stop Mass Incarceration Network Chicago. This program was recorded by Chicago Access Network Television (sound quality is poor).

Any movement fighting for fundamental change on major social issues has to have broad numbers of students on the front lines of their fight.”Read more
