Yesterday was an action packed day. Thousands of people rallied in Grant Park speakers inspired crowds to take to the streets against unjust NATO wars. Reports indicated that close to 10,000 people participated in yesterdays’ actions which remained peaceful in the face of vicious police brutality.

The colossal police presence was fully outfitted with riot gear,  pepper spray and LRAD’s.  According to CPD 45 arrests where made yesterday. While protesters where outside battling with cops Obama was meeting with President of Afghanistan  Hamid Karzai and delegates from the EU and 62 other countries to discuss NATO’s future in Afghanistan and missile defense among other topics.

Today Occupy Chicago is rallying against Boeing who is one of the largest benefactors of perpetual war and NATO policy. Boeing made over 4 billion dollars in revenue in 2010 and recieved a 1.56 billion dollar tax refund. Occupy Chicago is calling for them to pay their fair share. A March will begin from Union Park at 10 am CST and a day full of non violent direct action is planned. We will be bringing you the action as it happens all day.
