CHICAGO (AP) — Protesters who’ve been planning for months to converge on Chicago for a pair of important world meetings this spring say they have a message: No G-8? No problem.
The decision by the White House to move the Group of 8 economic summit to Camp David while the NATO summit remains in Chicago might have split the reasons to protest. But it won’t diminish the number of people – tens of thousands, by some estimates – who plan to come to Chicago for a rally and march to protest everything from war to poverty, said Andy Thayer, a leader of the Chicago Coalition Against War and Racism and the Gay Liberation Network and one of the principle planners of the Chicago protests.
It’s nice to know that the frustrated are not that frustrated. See you in May!
