Protesters want a monument in Burnham Park taken down.
The pillar monument honors Balbo and was a gift to Chicago from the dictator Mussolini.
The Chicago Tribune says that the fact that he was an Italian dictator and was pro Nazi is what the protesters have a problem with!
There’s even talk that they want to rename the street Balbo as well!
Until the Mayor decides what to do, I’m just gonna drive down Congress instead of Balbo!
