NATO Summit in Chicago Faces Even More Protests as Occupy 2012 Continues to Gain Steam
CHICAGO, IL – Demonstrations and protests continue in Chicago today, with many people out to voice their opinion. And there are quite a few different messages going out under the loose banner of the Occupy Movement.
The Guardian in the UK has a live blog going that is covering events on the ground in Chicago. Of course, the real news is being spread via Twitter and other social networks. Additionally, there are some who are streaming events live.
On Twitter, there are many different hashtags to follow to keep updated on events. Some of them include, #OChi, #NATO3 #NONATO and others, including the old Occupy Movement standbys – #OWS #OCCUPY and #USDOR.
On Sunday, many veterans threw their medals into the street to give voice to their feelings about war. The Guardian wrote:
The most well-known of the vets to speak on Sunday was Scott Olsen, the who was seriously injured at an Occupy Oakland protest last October. “Basically, [the medals] are tokens designed to make us feel good or rewarded for participating in fighting for the 1%, oppressing whole populations, and sending our world into a downward spiral,” Olsen told my colleague Adam Gabbatt. “They’re meaningless to me.”
