Two more anti-NATO protesters have been charged with felonies, in the wake of Sunday night’s demonstrations in downtown Chicago.
Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said Monday it was just a miscommunication this weekend, when police officers at Sunday’s anti-NATO demonstration began putting on their gas masks.
A Northwestern University political scientist says there is some irony in the tension between city and demonstrators against the NATO Summit, because Chicago needs demonstrators to raise its international profile.
With just two days to go before the NATO Summit begins, protesters are joining forces with the Mental Health Movement in their support to reopen clinics closed by the Emanuel administration.
