Chicago City Council: Don't Give Away Our Parks!

The Green Party of Chicago says, Aldermen, Don't Give Away Our Parks -- Vote "No" to Rahm Emanuel's Grab for Public Lands

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants the City Council to give away acres of public land from either Washington Park or Jackson Park for the creation of the Obama Presidential Library. 

The Obama Library should be in Chicago. But it should not be taking our public park open space, especially when there are better options that don't give away public lands.  

Let's tell the City Council to Protect Our Parks - and reject Rahm Emanuel's attempt to give away public park land!

    There are many potential sites that cry out for redevelopment. Let the Obama Library stand as an example of urban revitalization. Let that be part of president Obama’s legacy. Thank you.

    The parks are a public trust. They belong to the people. Do not give them away.
