So how did last week's protest go?

Posted by Mitchell - March 22, 2005 (entry 291)

Pretty well -- considering that the CMA organizers who showed up were outnumbered by non-CMA organizers who came, and the lot of us were outnumbered by Fox security and Chicago police who were standing watch at the door. We distributed some 400 flyers.

Interesting irony: Of all of the corporate outlets which covered the March 19 peace events in Chicago, I'm told that Fox Chicago provided the best English-language corporate coverage of the events. One would hope that our actions last week helped in that regard.

We've got some photos from our March 14 event. We'll be posting them to this website, along with a PDF of the flyer we distributed, hopefully soon. Also, in other news, we've received word that Al Franken himself announced yesterday that Air America will be returning to Chicago on March 31, 2005.
