EMERGENCY CALL -- WED, JAN 18th, STOP Rahm's "Sit Down & Shut Up Ordinances"

EMERGENCY CALL -- WED, JAN 18th, STOP Rahm's "Sit Down & Shut Up Ordinances"
 

7:30 AM, 121 N. LaSalle Street
 
On Jan Wed., Jan 18th the City Council is scheduled to vote on Mayor Rahm Emanuel's notorious anti-protester bills -- dubbed the sit-down-and-shut-up ordinances.  If passed, these ordinances would severely restrict the 1st Amendment in our city – virtually outlawing protest.
 
A huge ad hoc coalition of labor unions, community activists and others has risen up against these proposed ordinances, forcing Emanuel to put his spin machine into high gear, allegedly making major changes in the bills.
 
Don't believe the hype. 
 
The aldermen in both this morning's and afternoon's committee meetings were not allowed to read the text of that which they voted on.  The mayor has repeatedly misrepresented this legislation to the point where he has lost all credibility.
 
Schedule of Actions at City Hall (121 N LaSalle Street):
 
7:30 AM – Gather to pack the city council meeting (2nd floor) to make our voices heard before it's too late. (Overflow in 3rd floor viewing room, bring [concealed] signs!)
 
9:00 AM – Protest the proposed jail time for free speech with Occupy Chicago in the hallway.
 
Don't let Mayor 1% jam this anti-democratic, unconstitutional legislation down our throats!  Defend the 1st Amendment for the 99%, not just the 1%!
