Sweet home, Chicago is resisting transparency. Our move.

‘Gestapo’ tactics at US police ‘black site’ ring alarm from Chicago to Washington | US news | The Guardian

Politicians and civil-rights groups across the US expressed shock upon hearing descriptions of off-the-books interrogation at Homan Square, the Chicago warehouse that multiple lawyers and one shackled-up protester likened to a US counter-terrorist black site in a Guardian investigation published this week

Caught in the swirl of questions around the complex – still active on Wednesday – was [Rahm] Emanuel, the former chief of staff to Barack Obama who is suddenly facing a mayoral runoff election after failing to win a majority in a contest that has seen debate over police tactics take a central role.

Emanuel’s office refused multiple requests for comment from the Guardian on Wednesday, referring a reporter to an unspecific denial from the Chicago police.

Please join thousands of people in asking for a federal investigation of Holman Square by signing this Care2 petition.

Armchair activism works, so let’s put it to work in either closing Holman Square down, or cleaning it up.

Thank you.
