Thousands march in second weekend mass mobilization for Occupy Chicago

War! What is it good for?"Thousands gathered and marched on October 22 for the second weekend in a row to occupy public space at Congress Parkway and Michigan Avenue as part of the groundswell of support for the international 'Occupy Wall Street' movement for economic justice. More than a hundred occupiers were arrested — including National Nurses United nurses for refusing to abandon their first aid tent to support protesters/occupiers in Grant Park. Nurses are calling an emergency picket on Monday, October 24 at 10AM at City Hall, 121 N. LaSalle St., to demand that all charges against protesters be dropped and the City end its refusal to grant public access to public spaces and end its attacks on civil liberties.
