Congrats to the women, men and children of Freedom Square, now in their 17th day of protest. They have occupied an area of their Chicago neighbourhood that was used in the past by the Chicago police for illegally detaining and torturing suspects.
The encampment includes an outdoor kitchen, tents to sleep in, a library, play areas, free bike repair area, a first aid tent, sleeping areas, and classroom areas.
In Ms. Colón's words, "Freedom Square is not only a protest occupation, a pop-up neighborhood engagement center and a laboratory for nation-building; it's where abolitionist politics are tested and applied every moment of every day."
