Chicago NATO Protests: The Tearing Down of the NATO Banner, and an Arrestee on WTTW
There's been some chatter on Twitter this evening about the tearing down of the NATO banner on the Michigan Avenue bridge.
Appears someone was arrested. The man who pulled down the banner earlier. We need this persons name. The NLG needs it to help.— Occupy Chicago (@OccupyChicago) May 19, 2012
A couple livestreamers captured the limber protester who got his hands on the NATO sign after the National Nurses United rally segued into a briefly lived march up Michigan, which should give you a sense of why so many cops were out on Michigan between Wacker and Grand this afternoon. (And it was
so much slightly more attractive than that Bank of America bridge ad.)
Chicago Tonight spoke with one protester, claiming to have been "arrested and held for 30 hours without being charged."
