CHICAGO (CBS) —Thousands of people filled Daley Plaza to support the missing schoolgirls in Nigeria and call for their return, reports WBBM’s Bob Roberts.
The signs read, “Boko Haram is not Islam” and “Bring them back, every single girl.”
Organizers say the expected 100-200 people at the rally and march. Instead, they filled the plaza in front of the Picasso. The crowd was composed of women, children, families and even Rev. Jesse Jackson.
“The terrorists in Al Qaeda struck in Kenya and Tanzania before they struck New York, so we ignore African policy at our peril,” said Jackson.
