“No justice, Milwaukee will have no fun:” Black Panthers demand changes to economic conditions
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – The Black Panthers made their presence known in Milwaukee on Tuesday by demonstrating at the Summerfest offices.
The Black Panthers say they will stage disruptions and disturbances at Milwaukee’s summer events unless the economic conditions in the city change.
“We have people coming in from other cities, other states to join us in this,” One person said. “Milwaukee, if you don’t come up with a comprehensive economic development plan for the black and brown community and put it into play, you shall have no peace.”
The group specifically mentioned Summerfest, the State Fair, ethnic festivals and Jazz in the Park as potential places to demonstrate.
