We just belatedly received this report. Please continue sending in news and analysis regarding demos and occupations. Received and published:
Bloomington’s Black Lives Matter marched into the city council chambers on Wednesday March 29 in response to the Bloomington Police Department’s plans to purchase an armored Lenco Bearcat Assault Vehicle . The city council meeting ended early, and all but three council members left the building as the march arrived. Volan, Piedmont-Smith, and Ruff stayed to talk to the crowd of protestors. Black Lives Matter organizers said they would shut down every city council meeting until the purchase decision is revoked.
The protestors cited information from their recently published “Bloomington People’s Report” on the armored vehicle, hosted at https://bloomingtonpeoplesreport.weebly.com/

Against the BPD tank and the world it’s defending.
On January 20, 2017, as Donald Trump was inaugurated and while Bloomington was inaugurating a revolution, hundreds of demonstrators were rounded up by the Washington, DC police. Entire marches were “kettled” as police squeezed protestors together in a cordon, holding them for hours, before brutally arresting them and charging them with conspiracy. Now, nearly 200 people face up to 80 years in prison, simply for being present at a combative, dignified demonstration.
Their freedom is our freedom, and their convictions in court would destroy our collective ability to resolutely fight back against the Trump regime and what it stands for.
