Two girls sit on a curb at a protest organized by Communities for an Equitable Olympics 2016, an umbrella group comprised of various community organizations, on the potential site of a future Olympic village at Martin Luther King Drive at 31st Street in Chicago, Illinois on August 14, 2008.  Chicago is currently bidding for the 2016 Olympics; organizers question the long-term economic benefits to the communities effected by the construction of the Olympic village and the city's financial resources.
