Occupy Boston on 175 Arrests at Occupy Chicago

BOSTON–(ENEWSPF)–October 16, 2011. 

Occupy Boston is saddened by the fact that Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Chicago Police Department chose to arrest 175 members of Occupy Chicago last night for peacefully occupying Congress Plaza, placing city park ordinances above protestors’ constitutional rights to free speech and free assembly. We stand in solidarity with our sisters and brothers in Chicago and offer them all of the help we can give.
