Local Residents Attend Tea Party Protest

Some area residents attended Tea Party Protests, a grass-roots effort organized to protest what many feel to be out of control Federal government spending. Although some corporate media and legislators marginalize these people, calling them right-wing extremists, it is apparent in the Prairie Advocate reporting that most of them are average Americans who are tired of the Republican-Democrat parties who the protesters think are both representing the same thing, namely bigger, more costly government.

The video below was taken on a train ride to Chicago's Union Station, march from Daley Plaza to Kluczynski Federal Building Plaza and interviews with participants at the protest.

See the series of four by clicking the links. They range from four to six minutes in length.
