The Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) trained under radical street organizer, and leader of the anti-capitalist #occupy movement, Lisa Fithian, to stage a protest march in Chicago on 10/10/11.
During this event, more than 20+ members of the CTU were arrested.
THE NYT MAGAZINE SAYS THIS ABOUT FITHIAN
"You don't go to Fithian when you want to carry a placard," "You go to her when you want to make sure there are enough bolt cutters to go around."
BYRON YORK WRITES:
"Fithian is a legendary organizer who operates in the world of anti-globalism anarchists, antiwar protesters, and union activists...[SHE] played an important role in the violent shutdown of Seattle during the 1999 World Trade Organization meeting"
