To mark the fifth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, an organization called the Chicago Action Community is calling for a day of nonviolent "direct action, civil resistance and disruption," which includes asking like-minded individuals to leave work. The "Shut It Down" campaign is scheduled to conclude with a rally at Dirkson Federal Plaza.
