Spurious Terrorism Indictments
Three innocent young men face long prison terms.

On May 19 and 20, NATO occupied Chicago violently. Downtown residents were in virtual lockdown. No-fly zones were imposed. Elaborate barricades were erected. Constitutional rights were suspended.
Getting around was hazardous. Anyone could be stopped, searched, interrogated, or arrested. Chicagoans were under siege.
NATO is the world's first global war-making alliance. Largely a US imperial tool, it's a killing machine. Its 28 members and dozens of partner states comprise about one-third of the world's nations.
They menace humanity. For days, thousands protested nonviolently during their Chicago summit. Police brutality confronted them.
They faced no-holds barred surveillance, vigilantism, and brutality. They're viciousness is infamous. Their tactics include physical confrontation, flagrant abuses, and criminal assaults. Their odious reputation is well-deserved.
