OWS Week 5/23 – G8, Chicago NATO Summit, Tom Morello and more

All eyes turn towards Chicago, beginning May 17th, as 99 percenters rode solidarity bosses from New York City and other cities across the country to meet up with fellow patriots and protest against NATO.

NATO has killed many civilians in Afghanistan, bombed Libya into the Stone Age to plunder its oil.  This is while it ignores repressive regimes in Bahrain, Yemen and Egypt.

NATO forces, backed by the US, invaded Iraq and as a result Iraqi petroleum sources ended up in Western hands.  Cuts are being made to healthcare and students are being crushed by a trillion-dollar debt.

In a protest against NATO warmongering policies, veterans returned their medals. They protested the huge amounts of money being spent on wars at a time of austerity.
