At a November 7 rally, hundreds of people gathered at Federal Plaza in Chicago to protest Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid cuts. Afterward, they marched to the intersection of Jackson and Clark, where 43 people sat or stood in the middle of the street, dancing and chanting, “What do we want? No cuts!” This video shows the last of the 43 people—at least 15 of which were members of the Jane Addams Senior Caucus—being arrested.
