Chicago - May 1st 2009

May Day Rally in Chicago, co-opted by the immigration reform movement it is now a very diverse group, in a festive mood.

(click on image for full size)



















Different Attitudes




Charge!







The Green Party at a Red & Black parade.





All special CPD vehicles are painted black - the dark side of the force ;-)


















My Home Town ! Waukegan Illinois.







Photographers scramble to get a good shot as the march pauses.





Thouroughly enjoying themselves.





Bikes rule - and have no rules :-)


Real overthrow the government types - RCP

Juxtoposition



The Anarchists are all so young.

Trying to look tough - the only dickish authority figures I saw all day were 2 guards from the federal building who were freaking because people were leaning aginst THEIR galss.

haha

i like the protest looks like a fun day out. i wish more of the protesters would write their signs in English though so that their message could get across to more Americans. i mean the point of writing them is so people read them, right?

That rally looks like a real shit show. I'm going to get so much crap for this but...if they want to be a part of America and want to blend in with the rest of America, they can at least protest with signs written in English, not Spanish. If they want America's respect they shouldn't be speaking Spanish in a nation that speaks English for the most part.

The anarchists look so young because they have no clue what they are talking about, they're just angsty teenagers trying to fight the man.

Stop deportations? Don't come here illegally and try to screw the system by having children so you can't get deported. Funny how they want to screw the system but then complain when the system fights back.

I have no problem whatsoever with immigrants coming into this country as long as it is legal. Sorry I do not feel like supporting Pablo, Maria and their 12 kids with my taxes when they aren't supposed to be here.
