The people versus US and NATO imperialism

The following is based on a presentation given by the author, the Chicago Coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism), on an anti-NATO panel at Occupy Chicago's April 7 kickoff to the “Chicago Spring.” The final event of the spring actions will be a permitted march on the NATO Summit on Sunday, May 20.

On May 20 and 21, the NATO powers are holding a pro-war summit here in Chicago. Leaders from the world's most powerful countries will be descending on the city to promote an agenda of conquest, genocide and plunder.

The ANSWER Coalition will be mobilizing people from Chicago, the Midwest and the entire country to come to a mass protest on May 20. In Chicago, we will be passing out tens of thousands of leaflets in the streets and promoting the protest via social media and the protestnato.org website.

On May 20, the ANSWER Coalition will be marching under the slogans “U.S./NATO Out of Afghanistan! No War on Iran! Money for Jobs and Education.” Read More
