The Resistance Comes to Palatine

UPDATED 2/6/17, 10:00PM: Our demonstration in Palatine Saturday was highlighted on Rachel Maddow's show this evening. 

Also, Greg Hinz published a column in Crain's Chicago Business today titled "Time for Roskam to show up and meet with his critics" and featuring video from Saturday's protest.


On Saturday, February 4th, more than 500 constituents demonstrated outside the office of the Palatine Township Republican Organization where Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL6) spoke only to Republicans who agree with him. The protest was organized by the Palatine After March Action Group, Action Sixth District Illinois, 6th District of Illinois - Holding Rep. Peter Roskam Accountable,  Northwest Suburbs Organizing for Action (OFA), and other groups.

Channel 2 News covered today’s demonstration. They ran it on both the 5:00 and 10:00 news and posted it online:
