On our second day in Chicago, we marched to the mayor’s home and protested the closing of 6 of the city’s 12 mental health clinics. People from all over the nation joined in protest against the privatization of all aspects of our lives. Corporations have profit, not people’s health at heart and Rahm Emanuel has shown himself to be just another politician for the 1%.
Our bus dropped us off in Chicago at 6:30am, and by 11:00am, I was interviewing two famous activists in Daley Plaza. The FBI tried to frame Chris Fogarty and Mary O’Sullivan, but their plans fell apart under scrutiny. Today, Chris and Mary continue their fight for justice.
