The Weekend in Occupy Chicago

This is what democracy looks like.

1. "It behooves President Obama to put his Justice Department to work going after those police departments which have broken the laws and which have teargassed and beaten American citizens for exercising their constitutional rights."

2. Occupy the Red Line tomorrow.

WHEN: Tuesday 11/29, 5:30 p.m.

WHERE: Meet at McDonald's next to the 95th/Dan Ryan Red Line Stop

WHAT: We will have a brief meeting to run through the script, assign roles, distribute flyers and discuss the plan. Around 6pm, we will board the Red Line train and take it to Jackson. From there we will march to the Occupy Chicago General Assembly at Congress and Michigan.

3. Occupy Christmas Carols!

Emanuel, Emanuel
The Mayor sold us out!
16 million to his banker friends
That's what he's all abou-out!
Emanuel, Emanuel
The Mayor sold us out
Fines and fees and job layoffs
Cutting workers till they shou-out!

You'll be a one term Mayor
Cause the people who you serve
Don't think that you really care
About their jobs at all (no, no, no!)
We'll occupy all day
and we'll occupy all night
Until you change your way
We won't give up our fight!

Emanuel, Emanuel
The Mayor sold us out!
16 million to his banker friends
That's what he's all abou-out!
Emanuel, Emanuel
The Mayor sold us out
Fines and fees and job layoffs
Cutting workers till they shou-out!

The Mayor's only friends
Line his pockets full of cash
He'll sell out city piece by piece
Till we're left with only ash (cough, cough, cough)
We are here to say ENOUGH
That we just won't take no more
When Rahm tries to take your job
Just tell him: there's the door!

Occupy, Occupy
Occupy in your heart!
People fighting for their human rights
Can never be torn apa-art
Occupy, Occupy
Occupy in your heart
Join us against these budget cuts
And the Mayor will fall apart!
