Human Billboard for Mayor Emanuel
On September 20th, students lined up to present a petition with over 5,000 signatures to Mayor Emanuel Rahm. The petition was written to support the passing of the Clean Power Ordinance for Chicago. This ordinance would greatly reduce the SO2 and CO2 emissions from Fisk and Crawford power plants located in the Chicago area.
One hundred Chicagoans were present for the delivery. In addition to handing over the document, they also presented a poster of Mayor Emanuel Rahm as a superhero saving his city from the pollution caused by coal plants. The group lined up that morning across the street from City Hall. Each individual held a sign; each a piece of the message to Mayor Rahm. Together, the group formed a human billboard clearly displaying their support for the Clean Power Ordinance. Mayor Rahm has expressed a negative attitude towards coal power plants which many hope will translate over to the action of passing the Clean Power Ordinance.
