Antiwar Actions Escalate as M20 March Approaches

Peace. Now. As the March 20 antiwar march on Michigan Avenue looms, political activists are increasing the intensity and number of actions against the war apparatus in Chicago.

On March 6, 2007, political activist Andy Thayer filed suit in federal court against the City of Chicago for civil rights violations and attacks against three Constitutional amendments. The violations came amid a police crackdown during downtown peace actions on March 19, 2005.

On March 7, 2007, Code Pink activists involved with the Occupation Project were arrested amid civil disobedience actions at a local office for pro-war Democratic party representative Rahm Emanuel. Emanuel is one of more than twenty Senators and Representatives (nearly evenly divided between political parties) who have been targeted by direct actions demanding an end to funding the occupation of Iraq.
