The march has begun and is heading down Halsted. Obviously there is helicopter coverage by the media. That's why you will hear helicopters.
From Ald. Cappleman today:
"A peaceful protest has been planned on Chicago's Northside tonight, starting at the Belmont Red/Brown/Purple Line station at 5 pm and ending at the Stewart School Lofts (4525 N Kenmore Ave).
They are there to peacefully protest in unity to honor George Floyd and other black lives lost to police brutality. The individuals planning tonight's event have condemned all violence in no uncertain terms.
I support all those who are exercising their First Amendment Rights. The demonstration held in our neighborhood last night remained peaceful.
I want to make it clear that I condemn the actions of those who used the spirit of these protests to their own advantage and engaged in violence. If protesting, please continue to wear a mask and distance yourself when possible to keep you and fellow protesters safe."
