Chicago World Can't Wait to protest State of the Union at Daley Plaza, Counterprotest planned

A tipster has let me know that the Chicago branch of World Can't Wait (Drive out the Bush Regime) has a series of demonstrations planned Tuesday night while President Bush gives his State of the Union address.

They're goal is to create, literally, a lot of racket, so residents in the below, quite liberal neighborhoods and suburbs, can't listen the Bush's speech.

Evanston: 7:30 PM Meet at Church and Maple

Hyde Park: 7:30 PM Meet at 51st and Lake Park

Oak Park: 7:30 PM Meet at Harlem Avenue and Lake Street

Pilsen: 7:30 PM, Meet at Decima Musa Food & Spirits; 1901 S. Loomis. 312-243-1556
From 18th St. & Blue Island, Loomis is the street next to the Library. Go one block and you're at Decima Musa.

Rogers Park: 7:30 PM Meet at United Methodist Church of Rogers Park, 1545 W. Morse.
(1 block west of the Morse stop on the Red Line)
Co-sponsored by Rogers Park Community Action Network

Wicker Park: 7:30 PM Meet at North/Milwaukee/Damen (the corner near Filter Cafe)
March through neighborhood at 8:00 pm

Prior to all this noise, the World Can't Wait folks will gather at Daley Plaza in downtown Chicago at 5pm. The Protest Warriors will be there for the counterprotest.

If you're interested in joining the counterprotest, bring a camera with a good flash.
There will be many excellent photo opportunities.
