Nuns visit Rep. Walsh's office, protesting budget
FOX LAKE – More than 60 people gathered near the gazebo at Millennium Park wearing pins and stickers that read “Take down Joe Walsh” in support for the Nuns on the Bus tour.
The Roman Catholic sisters are traveling to nine states to protest a Republican-proposed federal budget plan they said will hurt the poor. The nun’s tour is sponsored by Network, a Catholic social justice lobby group from Washington.
The bus arrived at 1:19 p.m. and after a couple minutes, four nuns emerged from the multi-colored luxury bus to a loud round of applause and cheering. Sister Simone Campbell led the crowd about one block to U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh’s office where the four nuns and the large crowd entered.
