    Each month this year, we're going to revisit an episode from the 200+ episodes in the AirGo Archives and bring that conversation back to the forefront. This month, we're celebrating the 4-year anniversary of Freedom Square, a 41-day encampment led by the #LetUsBreathe Collective across from the Homan Square CPD blacksite. Recorded during the second or third week of the encampment, Kiss talks with organizers and young people about the beauty, challenge, and radical potential that became so visible and present in August 2016. This past weekend, more than 500 people returned to the lot on Homan and Fillmore to remember this occupation, recreate some of its magic, and demand the defunding of the Chicago Police Department. photo by Sarah-Ji Rhee: http://www.loveandstrugglephotos.com/ Learn more about this past week's action: https://blockclubchicago.org/2020/07/25/freedom-square-activists-imagine-public-safety-without-police-near-homan-square-black-site/ Join the #DefundCPD campaign: http://bit.ly/DemandDefundC

    On 5/31/20, a series of Black organizers and protestors were assaulted and arrested by the Chicago Police Department at a protest on 53rd street in Hyde Park. As community members mobilized to get them out, we didn't know that our comrade Chris Thoughtpoet Brown was one of the people arrested, and didn't lift up his name in the calls to release our people. A day later, Chris went live on his IG, explained what happened, and shared his perspective on the moment. He's given us permission to use that audio for an episode of AirGo.
