On August 29th, a homeless rights encampment in Chicago stood up to police threats earlier in the evening to shut it down. This is an important free speech precedent following the shut down of Occupy encampments by police forces around the country working in concert with the Obama administration.
Following footage of the rebuffing of the police, organizers discuss why they did their protest.
