Many groups in Chicago such as Break The Gridlock and Logan Square Walks are organizing a demonstration downtown on Wednesday to protest Chicago's Traffic Management Authority (TMA) policy of ticketing pedestrians. You can see the flyer here, or read the Trib's article saying that yes, this is dumb. If you want to join the protest, it starts at 5pm at Daley Plaze on Wednesday.
