The demonstration, scheduled during the NATO summit, was approved months ago for a march that would end at the city's Daley Plaza - but in a letter to event organizers, city officials said the rally would need to be moved to the less-centrally located Petrillo Music Shell, "to accommodate changes to your event, including a performance by a nationally known musician and a significantly increased number of expected attendees."


the petrillo music shell is like half a mile away from daley plaza. you still get to march through the loop, you still get to have your concert in downtown chicago (grant park). you're not being silenced or stopped.

Rahm has never seen a nurse riot before or he wouldn't dare try this.

They rally 'round Chicago, with a pocket full of gauze.

"...the organization's executive director RoseAnn DeMoro, who noted that the purpose of the demonstration was to support a transaction tax on Wall Street deals."

What does a Wall Street transaction tax have to do with nurses?!!!!!!

The nurses rally should have gone with one of the least threatening looking RATM guys instead.

Huh. What are some snarky comments I can make about NATO.

Anti-NATO? What are they for? Soviet troops racing across Europe, eating the croissants?

Very disappointed in what could have been a hot nurses thread
