Guardian journalist Spencer Ackerman's frightening revelations about Chicago's Homan Square, a secret, off-the-books interrogation facility, or equivalent of a domestic CIA black site, and the police brutality, torture and death, has opened up a festering secret.
Today, Saturday February 28, in 11 degree temperatures, a formal protest against Chicago Police and the torture, Guantanamo connection at Chicago's "Abu Ghriab" Homan Square was capture on live stream by Rebelutionary_Z STL LIVE, an independent journalist working with www.thefreethoughtproject.com and whose details are at the end of these screen grabs.
All these images below are attributable to him.
As he pointed out in his narrative, the march that followed the protest (and is still going on as far as I know) had protestors holding up their hands chanting "Don't Shoot" in solidarity with the "BlackLivesMatter" movement. Understandably, as the lack of accountability with Chicago PD is a thread of the same tainted fabric of systemic violence and injustice that has come to define law enforcement in the United States.
When we pretend torture doesn't happen and fail to prosecute, and when we militarize our local police departments, the blurring of blue lines is inevitable.
Ironically, Liberty Bank, appears to be housed in Homan Square.
This #HomanSquare story and Chicago's link to Gitmo is not going away. Stay tuned.
