Passersby stopped to read leaflets and listen to chants of, "Free Lily Obando," "No to U.S. bases," and "The people of Colombia are under attack! What do we do? Stand up! Fight back!" Chicagoans were joined on Michigan Avenue by activists from Arizona, Minnesota, Ohio, California, Florida and Washington D.C. for this international day of action.
