CABN helps organize police brutality march
The Chicago Anti-Bashing Network is a main organizer in a citywide march against police brutality set for early June.
The march is set for noon June 2 at Touhy Park, on Clark Street just south of Jarvis. A similar march is being held in Cincinnati on the same day.
CABN said the focus is to draw attention to the refusal of the state's attorneys office to criminally prosecute police accused of brutality. CABN is working on behalf of three men who have accused police of anti-gay attacks. Call ( 773 ) 878-4781; CABNstopthehate.@aol.com .
