Chicago G8/NATO Protests – Freedom of Speech in America Today

“Mama, I’m sort of scared”, my ten year old asked me this morning.

“Why?”, I responded.

“Because what if the police find out that you’re doing this (posting pictures of police violence on this blog) and they come to our house.”

This happened over the weekend.

“Basically NATO is used to keep the poor poor and the rich rich,” said John Schraufnagel, who traveled from Minneapolis to Chicago for the march. Since the end of the Cold War, he said, the alliance has become “the enforcement arm of the ruling 1 percent, of the capitalist 1 percent.” (Huffpost article)

    Thanks Amy…..those photos replace a million words. Impossible to explain to the young’uns, though my oldest granddaughter is involved with Toronto Occupy……I’ll probably be bailing her out one of these days. Toronto Police are in trouble over the G-20 summit a few years ago….(http://www.thestar.com/opinion/letters/article/1181120–fallout-from-g20-continues). There has to be transparency & accountability!

    BTW, happy Victoria Day! (oh, wait, American….have a good day anyway!)
