Pfleger Getting Ready For Anti-Violence March To Shut Down Dan Ryan
In a show of defiance Tuesday, activist and South Side Catholic priest the Rev. Michael Pfleger the Rev. Jessie Jackson and others ripped up a statement from Illinois State Police warning of arrests if they moved forward with an anti-violence march that will shut down a portion of the Dan Ryan Expressway this weekend.
"When people keep ignoring you, you take it up a notch, and we are moving to one of the main arteries in the city to say we are not going to have business as usual," Pfleger said during a morning news conference. "We are going to continue to take it up a notch until we get responses."
