|American Demolition -- What's in a name?|
At around midnight, we heard that Rahm's wrecking team was over at Whittier Elementary in the Pilsen neighborhood, sent there to destroy La Casita, the building that has become the symbol of the community's fight for a decent school library. By the time we got there, hundreds of parents, teachers and community activists had gathered to try and once again, save the building.

By the time we returned this morning, the wreckers had already returned and done their dirty deeds. Police cars and barricades had closed off access to 23rd St. from both directions and dozens of cops stood guard on the perimeter.

The last I heard was that those arrested were being released on I-bonds.
Dozens of others marched over to Juarez High School where machine Alderman Danny Solis was holding his back-to-school fair.
More to come.
