Chicago Clean Air Advocates protest in Chicago City Hall

City Hall protest April 21, 2011 final.jpg A couple of hundred protesters were fighting for clean air at Chicago City Hall today. Many folks that read Chicago Clout understand I have brought this issue to the press for years. I have posted many pictures of the coal fired power plants located in the Chicago Southside. I was hoping Mr. Del Valle would become Mayor of Chicago and have a real friend on this issue. I want you folks to understand, the Daley family and the rich powerful interests control the air pollutions. The Daley family is on corporate boards that can clean the air. I consider the positions so companies can legally bride positions. I want all you parents with their kids squirming on those dirty non-union maintained floors on the second floor of city hall, nothing will be done except some lip service. The air in Chicago will only get better when you vote new folks into office, one trick pony Harry Osterman was a no-show. I am happy folks are involved in making the world a better place, better you better make changes, and throw the bums out! Chicago Clean Power Ordinance is a start. Keep up the good work Alderman Moore of the 50Th Ward. Picture taken by Patrick McDonough.
