Livestream from inside the park, which began at midnight CT – “the occupation is not leaving.”
There were 175 people arrested last weekend in Chicago for attempting to set up tents as part of #OccupyChicago. I’ll be there reporting and livestreaming from Grant Park at 7pm central time (6pm ET) as they attempt to set up a base there once again.
Grant Park officially closes at 11pm, which was the excuse used by Chicago police to arrest protesters last week. #OccupyChicago organizers have indicated they intend to stand their ground once again and I will be there at 11 CT to film any arrests/standoff that may happen.
