Demonstrators Rally in Chicago Against Police Violence, Mass Incarceration

Protesters marched in Chicago, Illinois, on July 10, in a “Free Them All! Free Gerald Reed!” demonstration, rallying against police brutality and mass incarceration.

Gerald Reed was allegedly ‘tortured’ by the Chicago Police into confessing to a double murder he did not commit.

The protest, organized by the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, began at the James R. Thompson Center and ended at Governor JB Pritzker’s mansion.
