    Chicago became the largest U.S. city to call for a ceasefire in the Israel-Palestine conflict in Gaza, as the City Council passed a resolution Wednesday with a tie-breaking vote from Mayor Brandon Johnson and despite a temporary delay of the proceedings due to public disruptions. 

    “People have flooded aldermanic offices with emails, thousands and thousands of emails of people demanding that we take a stance on a ceasefire. That was what drove us to get this done,” Ald. Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez (33), one of the lead sponsors of the resolution and chair of the committee where the resolution received initial approval, said following the passage of the resolution. 

    The council did not hold a scheduled vote on the option for union-represented police officers to have serious disciplinary decisions decided in private proceedings.
