NATO Heads for Chicago
Chicago faces hostile NATO invasion.
by Stephen Lendman
A $100 million NATO invasion is coming. Low intensity conflict may follow. The "City of Broad Shoulders" may get more than it bargained for.
Nelson Algren once called Chicago the "City on the Make." NATO's May 20/21 "on the make" invasion isn't welcome.
Chicago NATO.org announced an Obama-hosted "diplomatic summit." Thousands plan protests against it.
The Coalition Against NATO/G8 War & Poverty issued a statement, saying:
"The city has carried out a campaign to intimidate and vilify protesters, claiming that protests lead to violence. In fact, the main source of violence in the world today is the wars being waged by NATO and the US."
"We will march in May during the NATO meeting to deliver our message: Jobs, Housing, Healthcare, Education, Our Pensions, the Environment: Not War!"
