Before the march started, Rev. Jackson spoke to crowd gathered.

“Mr. Biden said “Law is the law.” I don’t believe that. We must change the law to make it just law. Law is law is not enough for me, we must change the law.”, said Jackson.

Rev. Jesse Jackson went on to chant “Stop the Violence. Save the Children. No More Vigilante Justice.”

Protesters could be heard chanting “No Justice. No Peace. No Racist Police.”, as they marched through the streets of Chicago.

At one point during the march, an altercation occurred when protesters bike blocking verbally clashed with police as officers attempted to clear the road to allow vehicle traffic to resume.

The group marching would eventually disperse.
