Chicago March Turned Into Rally Due to Large Number of Attendees
CHICAGO, Illinois — Organizers canceled the march portion of a Chicago demonstration on Saturday because they feared too many people were going to attend and flood downtown streets.
Chicago’s Office of Emergency Management said organizers transitioned the march into a rally.
This still did not stop thousands of people from hitting the streets; more than 50,000 people took part in the event.
Chicago had the second largest turnout, right behind Washington D.C.
