World in View: Chicago in solidarity!

by Gerry Emmett

Chicago in solidarity, 2011

“Syria! Syria! Raise your voice! It’s our time! It’s our choice!” Hundreds marched in Chicago’s Loop on April 16 in support of the revolutions in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and across the Middle East. Participants included members of many different communities in Chicago, including Palestinians, Egyptians, Yemenis and Libyans, as well as members of News and Letters Committees, CODEPINK, and the International Socialist Organization, among others. One young woman from Yemen said, “It’s wonderful to see people from the U.S. here supporting us.” Similar demonstrations have taken place in a number of cities across the U.S., an expression of young people’s desire to support and participate in these historic revolutions.
