‘We will shut down O’Hare’: Protesters plan to march on Kennedy on Labor Day (WGN)
CHICAGO — Plans to shut down the Kennedy Expy. near Chicago O'Hare International Airport on Labor Day are moving forward.

Demonstrators plan to meet around 11:30 a.m. Monday before marching onto the Kennedy. The goal is to block both inbound and outbound traffic.

"We must end Chicago's tale of two cities," organizer the Rev. Gregory Livingston said at an event Saturday. Livingston helped organize a protest last month that briefly shut down Lake Shore Drive.

He added: "We will shut down O'Hare."

On the plan to march near the airport, Livingston said: "It is a sacrifice to make others uncomfortable."
That word. Somehow I'm not sure it means what he thinks it means.

Are the police going to do anything about it?

ETA: Apparently they plan to not allow it.
The Illinois State Police and Chicago Police Department said they won’t allow protesters to enter the expressway but wouldn’t say whether they expect to arrest anyone who does go onto the highway.

“Our goal is not to make an arrest, but we’re prepared for all purposes, all contingencies,” State Police Major David Byrd said Friday.

Both law enforcement agencies have been working together on developing a plan for Monday’s protest. The primary plan is to keep protesters, travelers and police safe during the march, Byrd said.

“There are several options that we’ve given [Livingston]. He knows what they are. I don’t want to get into them,” Byrd said. “Traffic will be uninterrupted. That’s the plan.”

Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson the department is “constantly” talking to groups that are thinking about doing things like shutting down traffic.
“We try to talk to them and see what their issues are. But … let’s not forget that shutting down expressways is illegal.”

I get the feeling Rahm is OK with it for some reason.

The arrests by Illinois State Police, the agency with jurisdiction over the Kennedy , represented a departure from how police handled two larger protests earlier this summer. In those protests, marchers blocked traffic lanes on the Dan Ryan Expressway and Lake Shore Drive under the watchful eye of the police, but no one was arrested.
So in the past the police have allowed this to happen but not this time.

In case anyone isn't getting my point:
Each subsequent demo is even more of a fizzle than the last. So far anyway.

Huh, Rahm just announced he's not seeking reelection. And there's enough clowns running to fill 2 circuses.
