Group planning to shut down Lake Shore Drive not working with police, mayor

By Sarah Schulte,

Anti-violence protesters plan to shut down a portion of Lake Shore Drive and streets around Wrigley Field on Thursday, but they are not working with Chicago police or the mayor’s office.

Participants expect to get arrested, organizers said. The protest will occur at the height of rush hour and just ahead of the 7 p.m. Cubs-Padres game at Wrigley.

At 4 p.m., the group plans to shut down the northbound lanes of Lake Shore Drive on Chicago’s North Side before marching west on West Belmont Avenue, then north on Clark Street to the ballpark.
