100 000 Immigrant Workers Protest in Chicago

There has been a huge protest of immigrant workers in Chicago. They were protesting proposed legislation which would criminalise anyone 'aiding' immigrant workers from priests to employers. Reports are that hundreds of workers walked out of factories and workplaces to join the protest.

The irony is that the US, like Britain and many countries is dependent on cheap immigrant labour.

There's me living in New York, and do you know how I learnt about this massive protest? Through your blog.

Reports in the mainstream press in the USA have been non existent. Bastards.

Cheers for uploading the image.

Pretty shocking that this has not been reported in the US press. Should be lots of stuff online though. Some reports had turnout at 200,000.
