This is What Democracy Looks Like, Act III

Undeterred by Saturday's arrests, a group of Occupy Chicago protesters marched to the offices of 2nd Ward Ald. Robert Fioretti to secure an "emergency resolution which authorizes 24/7 free speech rights in the Second Ward."

Maybe we're missing the parallels to the Wobbly free speech fights, but they've been able to protest largely unmolested, save for the pesky city ordinance here or there.

Anyway, how did their efforts to convince Fioretti work out? Watch.
