As protesters in Chicago sounded off against NATO's continued presence in Afghanistan, United Nations leaders urged the military alliance to use this weekend's summit to commit to "predictable, massive, long-term support" for the Central Asian country's security forces.The U.N.
The throngs of people descending on Chicago for the NATO summit hope to shed light on what they see as the world's most pressing problems, such as war, injustice and poverty. These are broad issues, but behind them stand individual people with stories to tell.
Three people apparently visiting Chicago to protest this weekend’s NATO summit remain locked up more than two days after their arrest in the Bridgeport neighborhood. But authorities aren’t saying when — or whether — they will charge the detainees with crimes.
Activists left an earlier rally that drew thousands to Daley Plaza, where a national nurses' union called for a "Robin Hood" tax on banks' financial transactions. Chicago police arrested at least one demonstrator as the nurses' rally broke up.
