The Occupy Movement confronts the NATO Summit this weekend in Chicago

by Thom Hartmann posted May 18 2012 1:53PM
All eyes are on Chicago this weekend – where an annual NATO Summit is going up against the Occupy Movement.  Tens of thousands of demonstrators are expected to attend this weekend’s marches and rallies, calling for peace and economic fairness.  Chicago police have already spent more than a million dollars on riot gear and high-tech crowd dispersal technology like long-range acoustic devices to use against the peaceful Occupy demonstrators. 

Already – in the lead up to this weekend’s actions – twenty people have been arrested – including some for protesting outside President Obama’s re-election headquarters on Monday.  So keep an eye on Chicago where the big question is: Will First Amendment rights be honored – or will we see another violent crackdown by law enforcement against patriotic Americans?

Listen to me live Monday through Friday 3 PM to 6 PM on WWRL AM 1600.
