CHICAGO - A protest in Uptown on the North Side is now stretching into its second week.
The goal is to stop the groundbreaking for a luxury housing building.
"We won't go without a fight. Housing is a human right," protesters chanted Monday.
Activists and homeless people are occupying a former parking lot near Weiss Memorial Hospital, calling their tent city Rise Uptown.
They're protesting the planned development of a 12-story, 314 unit building where rent would start at $1,700 for a one bedroom.
The group argues the community needs truly affordable housing instead.
