4. The Nato Protest Ended Peacefully
This was an ending no one in the city of Chicago expected, given the images of police raising billy clubs against demonstrators Sunday and the 90 or so arrests that have been made over the past few days during rallying. But last night as the Nato Summit came to a close, the crowd of 300-400 people spent much of the afternoon chanting, dancing, and having a peaceful demonstration. Attention was turned from international issues to domestic ones, like immigration, and though some protesters were still ranting about the police brutality they experienced during the past week, police Superintendent Garry McCarthy applauded his officers for their restraint and professionalism.
