Pop Tax Protest

Our elected representatives need to stop treating taxpayers as an unending supply of funds. On top of that, the “Cook County Sweetened Beverage Tax” is ill-conceived and an undue burden on local businesses.

We’re here to say: Enough is enough!

We will be protesting on Wednesday to demand an immediate repeal of the #poptax.

Bring your affected beverages. We will chill and share them in a tax-free manner.

LP Chicago at the Bughouse Square Debates

photoThe Libertarian Party of Chicago Meetup Group

Join The Libertarian Party of Chicago at their table at this year’s Bughouse Square Debates presented by the Newberry Library. Free and open to the public.

The event takes place in Washington Square Park across from the Newberry starting at 12 PM with music from Environmental Encroachment Brass Band. The main debates begin at 1 PM and Open Soapbox begins at 2:30 PM.

We strongly recommend our Libertarian Party candidates and activists participate in the Open Soapbox. This event will be a great way to spread the message of Liberty in Chicago and inform the public of our candidates in this upcoming eleciton. If you’d like to volunteer to help staff the table, please message us or email chair@lpchicago.org.

Per the offical website:
Bughouse Square (bughouse is slang for mental health facility) is the popular name for Washington Square Park. Just south of the Newberry, this park was Chicago’s most boisterous and radical free-speech space from the 1910s through the 1960s. Bohemians, socialists, atheists, and religionists of all persuasions mounted soapboxes, spoke to responsive, vocal crowds, and competed informally for attention and donations. The square’s core contributors, however, came from the Industrial Workers of the World union members whose radical views and wit made them perennial crowd favorites. In the park’s heyday during the 1920s and 1930s, as busloads of tourists ogled the scene, thousands of people gathered on summer evenings. World War II and a post-war crackdown against socialists and communists led to Bughouse Square’s decline and, by the mid-1960s, it had all but ceased to exist. The Newberry and community activists officially revived the spirit of the park with the Bughouse Square Debates in 1986.”
