The United States government shutdown, now in its second week, has sparked swarms of angry protesters to descend upon the U.S. Capitol – and that’s not the only place to see protest action. Nearly 100 government employees, many carrying signs denouncing Speaker of the House John Boehner and the Tea Party, rallied in downtown Chicago at Federal Plaza to protest the shutdown.
