“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
On Martin Luther King day, January 19th, 2015 members of Occupy Naperville joined with many activists and community organizations to celebrate his life and work and demand racial justice.
In the legacy of Dr. King and the movement that raised him, we marched in his honor and in effort to reclaim Dr. King from the sanitized and commercialized leader that mainstream-America has made him out to be.
We also joined together to remind the world that racism still exits in our society and that we will not accept this any longer.
The march began at the old Chicago water tower and soon left for downtown Chicago where we went to ABC, CBS and the Chicago Board of Trade. After the main march ended, a small group from Anonymous went to eh bean in Millennium Park and did a die-in.
Here are pictures from that day.
