After an initial rally in Grant Park, the demonstrators marched through the Loop to two more rallies, one at Trump Tower and the other at the Chicago Tribune building, chanting “Money for schools, not for war!” and “U.S. out of Syria!” They pledged to return to the streets, and called for a massive action in August on the 50th anniversary of the police riot at the 1968 Democratic Convention.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
