Dear Daniel, First Amendment Defender,
We need delegates to City Hall Wednesday, Jan. 17, at 1:00 PM in Room 201A of City Hall (121 N. LaSalle Street) to oppose Emanuel's pre-emptive strike against first amendment freedoms.
Why we have to be there:
The Committee on Special Events, Cultural Affairs and Recreation must pass the ordinance before the full Council can vote on it meets Wednesday, Jan. 17, at 1:00 PM in Room 201A of City Hall (121 N. LaSalle Street).
The City Council votes on the repressive Ordinance O2011-9743 the next day, Jan. 18.
The "Repression of First Amendment Rights for Chicago" (our name) Ordinance O2011-9743 calls for:
Doubling fines for resisting arrest to $1000
Allowing deputizing by the police with no specification for training deputies
Increased regulation on the uses of the sidewalks and streets
Mayoral control over all placement of audio and video devices
Mayoral no-bid power to dole out G8/Nato contracts to his friends in the Commercial Club or anyone he chooses without public input
Please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can come Wednesday, Jan. 17, at 1:00 PM in Room 201A of City Hall (121 N. LaSalle Street)
