It has been three years since members of the Occupy Chicago movement first took up residence in the city's financial district, standing in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street protesters in New York City. To mark the occasion and bring attention to issues like inequality, debt, political corruption and on-going war, organizers are arranging an all day and all night protest in front of the Chicago Board of Trade at Jackson Blvd and LaSalle St, beginning at 6am on September 23 and continuing until 9am on September 24. Leaders from organizations like the Chicago Anti-Eviction Campaign and the Revolutionary Poets Brigade will be attendance, calling attention to the work that is being done to make the city a better place for all of its residents. Even if you can't commit to standing outside for hours on end, you can still support the cause—organizers will be collecting winter coats and school supplies for individuals in need throughout the protest.
