Protesters against plan to shutter mental health clinics end 10-hour sit-in at City Hall Chicago
Opponents of Mayor Rahm Emanuel's plan to close half of the city's mental health clinics protested outside his office for about 10 hours Tuesday, finally leaving around 10:30 p.m. but vowing to continue their fight to keep the clinics open.

The protesters arrived at City Hall soon after noon to protest the cuts, saying the cost-saving measure in Emanuel's proposed budget will make it more difficult for Chicago residents to receive needed mental health services.

"This battle may not be completely won, but the war is definitely not over and can be won by us," said N'Dana Carter, 57, one of 12 protesters who wore blue hospital gowns over their clothes while sitting on the floor outside Emanuel's fifth-floor office.
