Massive anti-NATO demos and some 45 people arrested in Chicago tonight

I know of no figures but certainly the demo was big:

Upon the end of the demo, people rejected police threats to disperse and insisted in marching towards the World Imperial Government (NATO summit) to tell them some ugly truths. Police then attacked the demonstrators and arrested some 45 people (source: Sare Antifaxista[es], includes video).


Russia Today reports that Anonymous took down Chicago city and Chicago police sites yesterday in protest against NATO summit. (And the fact that we think it's alright is a major crisis of legitimacy for the whole Imperial system, which seems to exist on a bubble with an every-day thinner sociological support base).

Indymedia reports on the illegal home raid of yesterday, which ended with several people arrested as "terrorists" (with no apparent reason).

It also has another report on yesterday's large demonstration.
