The Occupy Wall Street movement against corporate greed is making its way to Oak Park, with a rally planned for this Saturday.
"Make Wall Street Pay in Oak Park" is the name of the event, which kicks off at 11 a.m. Nov. 5 at Lake Street and Oak Park Avenue, according to MoveOn.org, a liberal activist group. Organizers plan to march to a local branch of Chase Bank to close down their bank accounts in a gesture of protest.
"Are you tired of the banks making all the rules? Getting bailouts? And paying no taxes? Come to our Make Wall Street Pay rally in Oak Park," the event description reads at MoveOn.org. "We will be educating people about the criminal actions of the big banks, and organizing a group of individuals to march down to the Chase Bank and close their bank accounts!"
So far, 40 participants have registered to participate in the event, which is hosted by former Oak Parker Dylan Bellisle.
