Protestors in front of my building


From NBC Chicago:
A crowd estimated at about 2,000 snaked through Chicago on Tuesday in coordinated marches by Occupy Chicago and those commemorating May Day.
By most accounts, the protests by Occupy Chicago and those demanding immigration reform and greater protections for workers were noisy but peaceful.
"We want to convince them that the 99 percent are incredibly poor compared to the one percent of this country," said Jorge Mujica, one of the protest organizers.
May Day protesters began with a rally at Union Park on the city's near west side.
"We can't let unions die. We can't let our beliefs die, and this is just a reminder that we're still strong if we stick together," said Juan Campos with Teamsters Local 705.
They were later joined by members of Occupy Chicago, who began their day outside Bank of America on LaSalle Street to protest what they call corporate greed. Chicago police were waiting, with multiple officers guarding bank doors.
From there, the roughly 75 groups marched east back into the Loop, where they ended up at Federal Plaza.
