Get to know your protester: Zakiyyah Muhammad
The media's runup to this weekend's NATO summit may have given many of us the impression that all of the protesters spread across downtown and far-flung neighborhoods are out-of-towners and that their sincerest wish is to bump into groups of NATO dignitaries and give them a piece of their minds about military action in Afghanistan and beyond.
Zakiyyah S. Muhammad Saturday joined a rally close to Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's home. On the agenda: the consolidation of city mental health clinics. Muhammad assured our reporter Odette Yousef that there's a tie between international politics and what's happening locally in Chicago.
