After the CDP (Chicago Pilice Department) makes their announcements, Occupy Chicago splits into teams per personal decision and conviction to hold the horse as long as possible. Tense stand-off from 11:01 PM, Saturday, October 22, 2011 to 1:00 AM, Sunday, October 23, 2011.
The GA voted to "Take the Horse." Directaction Committee saw that the number of supports did not meet promised attendence or expectation. They brought it to the People. Occupy Chicago held the Horse for two hours. The struggle continues.
In all fairness to the CPD,they must be commended for not responding like the OPD (Oakland Police Department) did in the wee hours of the Morning of Tuesday, October 25, 2011, and after sunset the same day.
