Chicago: America's Epicenter of Resistance


Mayor Emanuel is waging war against Chicago teachers and all other public workers.

by Stephen Lendman

Public education is on the chopping block for elimination. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants it commodified into another business profit center. At issue is saving it.

Education isn't a product. It's a fundamental right. It's a societal bedrock. In Chicago and across America, it's being handed over to corporate predators. Their scheme is exploiting it for a buck. 

Money making is all they care about. Educating kids doesn't matter. Federal, state, and local politicians are in league with corporate profiteers. The future for millions of children is up for grabs. It's disappearing in plain sight.

On September 10, Chicago teachers walked out for more than better pay, vital benefits, job security, and other headline reasons. Media scoundrels twist truth their way. Readers are betrayed. Issues aren't explained. What's at stake isn't discussed.

Chicago streets are ablaze with red. It's the color of Chicago resistance. Thousands of red-shirted picketers took to the streets.
