In support, Stand Up! Chicago will be joining The Grassroots Collaborative in a action this Wed Nov 9th at 9am at City Hall, 121 N LaSalle Street. They will be declaring LaSalle Street a crime scene, as working families continue to be made victims by the corporate bandits and a budget that continues to squeeze our communities, while downtown TIF slush funds continue to be protected for the likes of United Airlines and the Mercantile Exchange. They will then march down to the Occupy Chicago HQ (Jackson & LaSalle) at 10am to show solidarity and head to the Board Of Trade to protest the Chicago Mercantile Exchange 's continued threats of leaving Chicago for even more tax breaks!
