Organizing starting now!
Poor People Millennium Movement Founder
Ms. Beauty Turner
E-mail me if you are interested in being a part of history.

Your opinions are welcome!!!!!!

We have marched in Lawndale, we have marched in Bronze Ville,
We have marched in Austin, we have marched in the emerald green grass on the west side of Chicago in Garfield Park, as well as on the south side on the concrete walkways in Washington Park.
We have marched in Auburn Grehams, we have marched in the Pullman community, we have marched until our feet have literally became swollen,
Red, raw and sore.
And still yet the violence’s have not seized.
Our babies are being drowned, stabbed and shot down like rabid dogs
Not only by allege gang members but also shot in the back by law enforcements, even some of the killings have not been reported.
Right here on our city streets , right here in Chi-town- right here in good old boy Chicago, right here in America, right here on American rich black soil.
We have marched all over this city, weeping and crying until we have callas on our feet and yet the conditions has worsen .
So now we will take it from the streets, straight to the Chief.
Mayor Richard M. Daley.
He appointed Supt Weiss to do a job, but nothing have stopped the violence’s nor the killing
We need answers, we need solutions, we need the killing to stop, and we need it now!
No more hiding our heads in the sand, no more burying our feet in wet concrete
Our new spiritual for the new millennium is:

“No more weeping, no more weeping, no more weeping over me!
Before I be afraid, I be buried in my grave and go to my lord to be free!”

Police allegedly raid memorial services

Ms. Beauty Turner

On July 25th, all hell broke loose in a Southside neighborhood of Englewood on 57 Winchester, due to reports from the trenches-the people on the grounds reportedly said the Chicago police struck once again, trying to bust up a peaceful memorial to a young man slain by the name of Benny Ross about a week ago.
Family, friends and activists had gather in an open school lot; honoring their love one memory, a love one who had been killed by youth on youth violence. When all of a sudden, according to witnesses (allegedly) numerous of police cars rolled in blasting their sirens and blinking their lights allegedly cussing and calling the African American children, “Black apes according to some of the witnesses.
" The police officers said that Ross weren't a favorite person of their, they were glad that he was dead and gone," according to a reliable witness.
Someone else who didn't want their names mention (due to allege retaliation) told me over the telephone that an officer spoke out bluntly saying “you all need to quit hanging in a playground and go hang in a tree!”
I received a call from Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. of the POCC at 5:58 pm, Many of you might know his father slain Civil Rights Leader of the Black Panther Party Chairman Fred Hampton Sr. Hampton Jr.was on the scene. ,
while talking to him; I could tell that in his voice that he were deeply trouble; as well as highly upset. .
“Hey Sis,’ a pet name he often calls me concerning a story or an event that he want announce, he yelled over the receiver- “The Chicago Police is dragging and beating some children that are on Henderson Elementary School lot. .
“Call for some media to come out here!” He continues.
All while he was talking; I could plainly hear a lot of sirens sounding off in the background, as well as a lot of yelling taking place .
I first called the media and explained to them that there may be a breaking story, gave them the source, time, date and location-
No media showed up, so I stayed with the story.
As a journalist; I called Chicago Police Department spoke people to inquire about the allegation, that had just been brought to my attention.
A police officer told me there was no such action taking place; nothing is going on there! He went on to say that we are trying to do our jobs serve and protect, I politely asked him.
Don’t you think you should first look into those accusation, before answering me I asked him.
He said he would and call me back.
When he called me back, he stuck to the same story as before.
Another twenty Min went passed, Chairman Fred called me back and said that no media was there.
I could still hear loud disturbing sirens as well as scuffling and yelling in the background; sometime getting so loud it drowned out our conversation. After we hung up, ten second later,
Someone called me from Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. telephone telling me that the police dragged Chairman to jail after allegedly beating him.
A few moment later; I received another call telling me about another activist named Grant News burger; who were also allegedly beaten by police officers and taken to jail.
So I called CPD spoke people again and asked them about Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. as well as about Grant being locked up, is there any truth in that?
He hung up vowing to call me back after he checked- less than five min later he said yes; he is locked up, him and ten other people for mob action, a few officers were hurt taken to the hospital; but they will be okay he added. Mind you earlier I was told nothing was going on over there.
Activists reported that: People refused to be intimidated. When police tried to forcibly disperse them, police were met instead with people calling them "murderers!", some holding up Revolution newspapers and pointing to its cover headline "TRIGGER HAPPY POLICE...AND A CRIMINAL SYSTEM". Police charged the crowd with tasers drawn, beating many. Hank Brown, Revolution journalist, activist Fred Hampton, Jr. and Grant News burger along with a number of neighborhood youths were beaten and arrested, including two Revolution distributors.
CPD Spoke person said-“Yes Ms. Turner ten people were arrested for mob action , “Yes. Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. was one of them.”
News burger were taken to a nearby hospital attended to and taken back to a holding cell.
They stayed in jail for twenty four hours and released.
Legal Defends lawyer Anthony Hill came out to see what was happening to the ten young men that were arrested.
According to Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. Their court date is August 22 at 1pm on 51 Wentworth in branch 34-4
To all Activists and family and friends as well as concerned citizens “Come out and show your support for the people involved..”

"Our Rights" as a people by Ms. Beauty Turner

"Our rights"
Ms. Beauty Turner

Our Constitution starts off with these words -“We the people!”
We the American people are being forced to accept a water down, diluted version of our Constitutional Rights ,all in the sake of fear.

Fear is an ingredient that the politicians used as a substitute sugar, only to trim the crust off our slice of the American apple pie, to sweeten our taste buds as they continue to cut away our Constitutional rights.
Leaving us with a foreign bitter taste of what America use to be.

With fear lingering over our heads like an American flag, we will readily hand over our rights without a struggle and let the Government have a blank check to cash out, with what ever they say, to so call keeps us safe.
Which is what is leading us into a growing tangle weed of a recession.

Once an old wise man said to me, as I say to you today.
‘You have nothing to fear; but fear itself!”
Use your own heads for more than a hat rack, think before you hand over anything that takes away from who you are!
Fight to keep your rights, fight for what makes America what it is! Stand up and be vigilant for your self- Freedom begin with standing up not sitting down and placing your head in the sand like a frighten ostrich!

Fear is an unnecessary ingredient that is being forced down our narrow throats, we as a people must throw it back up and not swallow this as truth
You know not what to expect when you were a new born. Never knew what life entails.
You don’t know what to expect when you are dead and gone, because many of you haven’t died before and came back to tell it.
Life is a journey that you take and know not where it begin or end- but it is what you do here that makes the different.
Hopefully you create a great different for a multitude of many, than your life wasn’t lived in vain.

Our constitution started off with we the people and that where it must end.
Liberty, justice and Freedom for all!
How sweet it is!

Shedding a mother's tear

By Ms, Beauty Turner

While Mayor Daley Irish eyes are smiling and sleeping,
young Black and Hispanic mothers are sobbing, crying and weeping.
Our babies are dying on our city street;
many of them with no food in their mouth and no shoes on their tiny feet.
Politicians tore down the jects,
saying it was infested with gangs and drugs and rats.
They built mixed income communities in it place,
saying you can move into it if you of another race
On a fix income, they lable you a bum.
But if you are rich and drink rum,
all day!
They say is that how we play!
We are in a recession with our wallets flat
Now they playing with our children lives; Russian Rolette ….
Having phony accountable meetings- waving Hi to the crowd a special greeting,
while marching with "Stop the killing" signs in the hood,
Thinking that all they have to do as politicians to make it good!
Not really getting any traction, only want Chicago as a tourist attraction.
Gun fire erupting in the air , about our babies they don’t seem to care!
All while saying Jody Weiss is the one that not being treated fair!
Chicago streets flows with blood, while Wisconsin rivers flood
Dying Black and Hispanic babies sleeping, young mothers lay crying,
sobbing and weeping.
Another child blood is spilled- another Black or Hispanic child is killed
Superintendent Jody Weiss, treat the Black and Hispanic communities as if they had lice.
Experimenting on our babies; like they are lab mices.
A weeping willow here, shedding a mother's tear,
Please dear Lord wipe away our fear!
The prayer that I pray; is dear God make them sincere!!!!

"A word to the Weiss" by Ms. Beauty Turner

A word to the Weiss
Ms. Beauty Turner
National Award winning Journalist
Activist / Researcher

On July 15 the new police Superintendent Jody Weiss was summon to a hearing by the Aldermen on the second floor at City hall located at 121 North LaSalle.

An accountability committee meeting at City Council took place a little after 10AM.

Leading the charge was Alderman Isaac S. Carothers 29th ward;
himself as well as others were highly upset by the crime that have been erupting like hot lava throughout Black and Hispanic gentrifying communities.

Thinking hard about the killing of our youth here in Chicago; it made me think about our telephone lines being known for housing thousands of grey and white pigeons.
There’s an Analogy that stands out vividly in my mind like a sore red thumb; concerning the violence that is plaguing our communities.
That Analogy is……
If these actions are not addressed "Our children are standing on a fragile power keg that is ready to erupt into gun violence at the drop of a pigeon feather.

Over 35 youth have been gunned down on our city streets by allege gang members
As well as eleven young adults have been shot in the back and killed by law enforcement and the numbers are study rising like mercury in a thermostat on a hot muggy day with no end in sight!

Many hot communities that are experiencing youth killings are on the Southside, west side and the South east side-all the areas where many Chicago Housing Authority public housing residents have relocated into.
With Weiss not even into his job a good six months; the Chicago crime rate has risen 13%; leaving the streets of Chicago covered like the red sea in our youth blood and not in emerald green grass and yellow flowers like Mayor Daley said that he wanted.

Many of Chicago citizen’s are saying that protecting the environment and not the people is a very unpopular move
If these types of actions continue you can bet that there will be no 2016 Olympic here on the windy shores of Chicago!

Mayor Richard M. Daley as well as Weiss have joined forces blaming the media for bringing attention about officers that inflict unwarranted pain on to civilians, allegedly leaving them too timid to do their jobs affectedly.

Daley as well as Weiss are trying hard to implement the SOS tactics team that they earlier had dismantle because of corruption …….

Many people in high places told me that Weiss is being used as a scrape goat and he should be given time as he experiment with his strategy in policing Chicago.

My mother always said that there are many ways to skin a goat; one-way is to tell the truth and shame the Devil.

As Black and Hispanic women who are mother’s and grandmother’s we can no longer afford to continue to be silence while our children are being killed on our city streets as if they are in a war in Iraq!
Our babies are not lab mice so Weiss could continues {Daley} experimenting with their life‘s.

A word to the Weiss from the Black and Hispanic communities.
We want the killing to stop from gang members as well as from the hands of law enforcement?
And we want it NOW!!!!!
Do the job that you are being healthily paid for by the tax payers to do!
Protect all of Chicago neighborhoods as if it was the Gold coast!
Don’t neglect one, no not one, but serve all!
