ALEC in Chicago: 10 Photographs that Tell the Storyby Harriet Rowan — August 21, 2013 – 7:07am

As corporate lobbyists and legislators were arriving, the Illinois Moral Monday Coalition made good use of the stunning background of the Palmer House lobby to drop simultaneously several anti-ALEC banners from the balconies. Six of the dozens of participants were arrested for their acts of civil disobedience in speaking out about ALEC.
Some of the banners read: “ALEC Makes For-Profit Prisons,” “Moral Monday: No To ALEC,” and “ALEC Attacks All Workers.” The Chicago Moral Monday Coalition partners include: local clergy and laypeople, the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU), National Nurses United (NNU), US Uncut, Chicago Youth Climate Coalition, Chicago Fracking Working Group, Communities United Against Foreclosures and Evictions, Young People’s Assembly on Violence and Youth Services Project, Southside Together Organizing for Power.

Fox Valley Citizens for Peace & Justice will rally in opposition to a US military strike against Syria on Thursday, September 12th from 4:30 PM till 5:30 PM in front of the new Walmart at 1100 S. Randall Road in Elgin. That’s a block South of Bowes Road on the West side of Randall.
We chose that site for maximum visibility and that time for the maximum flow of traffic along Randall.
Please let us know if you are coming by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to know that we will have at least the minimum number of people necessary to make a credible statement of opposition.
