Black Friday Economic ShutDown!

November 25, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


On November 25, 2016 Citizens from across the City of Chicago will be gathering at the Water Tower to call for an Economic Boycott which will take place on the Magnificent Mile and across the country. As the citizens of Chicago, we are calling for people to #BoycottBlackFriday and #BuyBlack. We are demanding that money gets invested and funded back into the abused and neglected communities on the South and West sides of Chicago.

Black Friday’s march will aim to disrupt Chicago’s busiest shopping day and draw attention to the problem of gun-violence, segregation, racism, and police brutality in Chicago

(News Report from last year 11-28-2015)
“¬≠Activists and organizers who blocked the entrances to stores on North Michigan Avenue on Black Friday to protest the fatal shooting of a black 17 year old teenager named Laquan Mcdonald by a white Chicago cop named Jason Van Dike, shooting him 16 times may have split opinions with their tactics. This also came to a conclusion on up to 70 percent of the citizens of Chicago calling and demanding the resignation of the Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel and former Cook County States Attorney, Anita Alvarez for covering up the murder of Laquan Mcdonald for 13 months, 400 days just to win the election back in April 2015.
But their goal of forcing retailers to suffer economic pain on what’s historically the busiest shopping day of the year was a success, according to unhappy store staff and managers who said that following Monday that Black Friday sales on the Magnificent Mile were 25 percent to 50 percent below projections.”

On November 25, 2016 the Economic Boycott will be a Black Friday part 2. If you will like to donate for this event, please message Antonio Dyson. PLEASE REMEMBER NO IN AND NO OUTS
