CPS building demolition met by protesters

August 16, 2013 (CHICAGO)

The protesters are demonstrating outside Whittier Elementary School near 23rd and Damen.

Demolition crews have legal orders to begin dismantling the field house behind the school which engineers say is structurally unsafe.

Protestors delayed a demolition on the building back in 2010.

Police have asked protestors to disperse or risk arrest.
