INTERNATIONAL REVOLUTIONARY DAY
During an early morning police raid on December 4, 1969, Chicago police opened fire on 2337 West Monroe Street (Chairman Fred Hampton Way) assassinating 21 year old Chairman Fred Hampton and Defense Captain Mark Clark. It was proven that the assassinations were planned and carried out with the involvement of Chicago police, State Attorney Edward Hanrahan, and J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI under a program called COINTELPRO, which specifically targeted The Black Panther Party.
International Revolutionary Day (IRD) acknowledges these assassinations EVERY YEAR on December 4th internationally.
