Chicago Protest
A C&L reader writes in:
"I work in the building directly south of the Sears Tower and in the heart of the Chicago Loop where today's immigration protest is taking place. It is simply astounding. The city streets are packed much farther west of Michigan Ave and Grant Park than the previous rally a month or so ago. here must be 6 or 7 times the amount of participants, which they estimated at 100k for the last event. The crowd breaks out into seemingly spontaneous cheers about every 5 minutes, but none so loud as when they are chanting USA, USA, USA. Also, its completely civil, so lets hope it inspires something more than just awe."


"It's difficult to describe the energy that radiated from the mass of humanity before me. Their chants of "U-S-A! U-S-A!" caused this section of the city to pulsate. Whether you believe protests are effective or not, whether you agree with those protesting or not, it's hard to deny that these people, with their mere presence, have proved that the art of protest is still alive in the streets of on"
