Today Occupy Chicago protesters stormed City Hall to let Mayor Rahm Emanuel know their displeasure in the recent arrests of the Occupy campers at Grant Park on Michigan Avenue.
They were lead by radical anti-war activists Joe Iosbaker
and Andy Thayer
, who we have reported on in the past for their ongoing investigations
by the FBI. In September of 2010 they were targeted for suspicion of providing material support to Hamas, the F.A.R.C. and other terrorist organizations.

Here is footage of Thayer last spring addressing a Chicago crowd and calling for "action" like we saw in Egypt.
Thayer and Iosbaker have played a key roll in organizing massive demonstrations
in Chicago this coming May for the G-8 and NATO summits. The recent anti-war and Occupy protests have served as a clear rally cry to build momentum and support for these demonstrations next spring. The tandem duo worked their message and demands for G-8 and NATO protest permits into todays Occupy City Hall protest.
Stay tuned for continuing coverage and video footage from today's march and "occupation" of City Hall.
