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!

    Tear down project housing, which is empty in Roscoe Village on Leavitt Street and build there. Come on Rahm! In a city park? I’m embarrassed to be a Chicago resident if this is what our leadership is trying to execute. There’s room all over Chicago especially on the south-side, where theres empty boarded up housing. Re-ignite the community, actually do something to help! You want to build a library for a man who is pushing environmental awareness hard, and you’re trying to kill it. Oxymoron?
