OCCUPY CHICAGO DECLARES VICTORY AFTER ALL CHARGES FROM ENCAMPMENT ATTEMPTS ARE DROPPED

This ruling is another victory for Occupy Chicago in beating back Mayor Emmanuel’s attacks on the First Amendment rights of activists. “The whole city is getting tired of Rahm’s abuse of power. This is what we saw with the immense community support for the teacher’s strike. This what we saw back in January when we were able to mobilize the community against Rahm’s “sit down, and shut up” ordinances. And this is what we see now with the charges being dismissed. Grant Park has a long history of being an open political forum in the city of Chicago and for Rahm to try to restrict political activity in this park with unconstitutional arrests, is not only an insult to the political history of Chicago, it also goes to prove that Rahm, not really being from Chicago, does not understand Chicago, and the rights of the people who live here,” said Andy Manos Occupier arrested on October 23.
