Activists return to mental health clinic for rally
April 14, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A day after they were released from jail, nearly two dozen healthcare activists returned to Woodlawn Mental Health Clinic for a rally.
"I saw elders handcuffed, when they need treatment," said activist Eliza Solowiej. "I saw people locked up when they just need healthcare."
The protesters were in a vacant lot across from the clinic.
They were joined by nurses and other members of their community.
The activists were arrested after staging a sit in inside the clinic Thursday night.
They're urging Mayor Emanuel to keep the clinic open, fully funded and staffed.
