Photos: Residents Protest Disruptive Mt. Hope Funeral Processions

Almost 200 residents of Morgan Park, Mt. Greenwood and surrounding communities participated in a silent protest against Mt. Hope Cemetery.

They say they have had enough. 

Residents who live in the areas around Mt. Home Cemetery, 11500 South Fairfield Ave., say they have seen a steady increase in the number of disruptive funeral processions making their way into and out of the cemetery. 

Many of the protesters, who staged a silent demonstration 300 feet from the cemetery entrance, say that the processions often involve gang affiliated individuals and cause serious problems for the neighborhood.
