Report from the March on City Council against the Bear-Cat

Standard

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/
