24. White. DFAB Genderqueer. Southerner/Floridian. Northeast Florida-born, college in Chicago. Fine arts and cultural criticism bachelor's degrees on hold. Living and working and agitating in my very problematic homeland. Shutting up and listening when I'm privileged, speaking out when I'm not.
So a couple of my friends were arrested this morning…
They’re among those being called “The Chicago 6.” They climbed the mountain of coal at the Crawford coal plant in Little Village, to hold a massive banner that read “Close Chicago’s Toxic Coal Plants.” They were arrested at 11am for criminal trespass and were taken to 3315 West Ogden.
