I think I can speak for the staff when we say that we are shocked by the violence and act of domestic terrorism that happened in Charlottesville, VA. I wish I could say that this was the work of Nazi’s from space, chemtrails, or a “false flag” operation. The truth is that this was the work of humans. Aliens also won’t save us from ourselves. We have to work to bring about change.
These are the following events we are aware of in the Chicago area.
Refuse Fascism will gather at Millennium Park at 1 PM today, then march to Trump Tower.
The Chicago chapter of the International Socialist Organization will gather at the corner of Wacker and Wabash, across from Trump Tower, at 1 PM.
The organizers of the Illinois Women’s March will hold a vigil at 6 PM at Federal Plaza, 219 S Dearborn, ST.
There will be a gathering in front of Rep. Peter Roskam’s office in Barrington starting at 6 PM. The address is 200 N Hough ST. The organizer asks that all signs have a positive message.
Additionally, there is a GoFund me page to pay for the medial expenses of the 19 people injured by the car attack.
