The day after the U.S. started its invasion of Iraq, some 15,000+ people demonstrated in a protest led by the Chicago Coalition Against War & Racism, of which CABN is an active member. Protesters flooded past Chicago police onto Lake Shore Drive, taking over all eight lanes, and marching for about a mile on the Drive to protest the U.S. slaughter. People were angry that the invasion was launched despite the express demands of most of the world's population, as registered in polls and the largest series of protests the planet had ever seen.
Mainstream news reports indicated that Chicago's was the largest "emergency response" protest held in the U.S. on March 20th, and most national networks broke into their regular broadcasts to show footage of the protest. For detailed accounts of the protest, including comments from CABN members, read the following front page article by Ben Joraksky of The Reader, along with a sidebar by Sergio Barreto.
