Petition to Immediately Drop All Charges Against the Chicago Occupiers

"I am signing this petition to demand that all of the charges be dropped immediately on all of the Occupy Chicago protesters, especially, though not limited to, those who were arrested en masse on Sunday, October 16 and Sunday, October 23.

It should not be a crime to peacefully assemble in our city to demand that money be spent on human needs and not for massive corporate bailouts and tax breaks. The real criminals are in the boardrooms and executive offices, not the people protesting for jobs, healthcare, and a moratorium on foreclosures.
By signing this petition I show my support and solidarity with Occupy Chicago and their demand for a permanent encampment."

This petition was delivered to:
  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel, City of Chicago, Chicago Police Department
