Let the #occupychicago movement stay in Grant Park without arrests

To be delivered to Rahm Emanuel, Mayor of Chicago

Petition Statement

Rahm Emanuel, stop the mass arrests of protesters in Grant Park. Respect their right to peacefully assemble, and allow them to have a base to protest from. Don't let this end like 1968.
There are currently 13,831 signatures. NEW goal - We need 15,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Don't let the Chicago movement be forced out of Chicago. Let those who occupy the streets have a base where they can stay, regardless that the park arbitrarily closes at 11 p.m.
