AUBURN GRESHAM — Thousands of anti-violence demonstrators marched onto — and then shut down — the Dan Ryan Expy. Saturday morning to draw attention to the crisis of violence some Chicago residents endure on city’s South and West sides.
The peaceful morning protest led to the takeover of the northbound side of the Dan Ryan. Despite warnings from the State Police, no arrests were made, Chicago Police said.
Traffic came to a full stop near 79th Street as protesters marched north on the expressway to 67th, with some stopping to write messages in chalk on the lanes that would normally be jammed with cars on a Saturday morning.
