(CHICAGO) A march against Mayor Rahm Emanuel's school closings took place downtown late Wednesday afternoon.
There wasn’t a huge crowd for the march, but angry Teachers Union President Karen Lewis gave her membership some homework.
Lewis: "Our schools are under attack! What do we do?"
Crowd: "Fight back!"
Lewis: "So let me tell what we’re gonna do. On the first day of school, you show up at your real school! Don’t let these people take your school!"
Lewis told the crowd this school closing fight isn’t over until they say it’s over.
