Protesters March Through Chicago Over Rittenhouse Verdict

Demonstrators took to the streets of Chicago, Illinois, on November 20 in protest of a Wisconsin jury’s November 19 verdict acquitting Kyle Rittenhouse of all charges against him.

This footage by Brendan Gutenschwager shows protesters marching through downtown Chicago displaying signs and chanting. In part of the video, some demonstrators can be heard chanting, “The only solution is communist revolution.”

Rittenhouse faced five felony charges including first-degree intentional homicide, stemming from deadly shootings in Kenosha during unrest in the city in August 2020. His lawyers argued he was acting in self-defense. Credit: Brendan Gutenschwager via Storyful
