This Friday is Parking Day, which is an attempt to reclaim greenspace within cities by turning parking spaces into greenspaces for a day. In Chicago at least one action is planned in Pilsen (highly recommended background YouTube vid here) and it's worth defending: a community garden is under threat to be developed... into a parking lot. There is also another effort going on Saturday too.
