Occupy Chicago celebrates 1 year after Grant Park march

October 15, 2012 (CHICAGO)

Demonstrators rallied at Jackson and LaSalle Monday night, then marched to Congress Plaza in Grant Park where they held a free speech fest.

One year ago, many of the same people made the same trip in an effort to set up a camp at the park. Nearly 200 were arrested. But in September a judge ruled that the group's eviction was illegal.

Occupy Chicago says the event is a celebration of their resistance.
