16 Truckloads of Protesters Coming to Chicago for NATO


NEW YORK, NY - They’re here, and more are coming — lots more.

The first major busload of out-of-town anti-NATO protesters arrived in Chicago Wednesday evening.

Sixteen hours after they pulled off from a dark New York street corner at 4 a.m., more than 40 tired but excited Occupy Wall Street activists stepped down onto a leafy Lincoln Park block at 7 p.m. wearing Robin Hood masks.

“It’s been fun to ride with you and I’m proud to march with you all,” Shen Tong, one of the “bus captains” told the occupiers moments before they hit Chicago’s streets.

“Let’s rock and roll!”

The arrival of the bus from a protest that sparked a nationwide movement against “the global one percent” marked the beginning of what is expected to be an influx of protesters for this weekend’s NATO Summit.

An additional 16 buses — funded, like the Occupy Wall Street bus, out of a $218,000 donation from anonymous donors and National Nurses United — are due to arrive in time for Friday’s “Robin Hood Tax” rally from Los Angeles, Oakland, Portland, Boston, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Providence and Washington, D.C.

Tong, a student leader of the 1989 Chinese democracy protests in Tiananmen Square who became a tech millionaire after he was exiled to the U.S., predicted 10,000 out-of-town protesters would find their way to Chicago one way or another.

Bearing dozens of cell phones, laptops and other digital devices, Tong and the racially diverse group of protesters used social media to keep in running contact with other buses that have already left Los Angeles and Portland, streaming video from their bus over the Internet.

If the iconic bus of the 1960s counterculture was author Ken Kesey’s fluorescently-painted psychedelic school bus, the Occupiers’ coach, was modern, bland and a little “bougie,” the protesters joked — equipped with DVD screens and WiFi. Kesey’s band of pioneering hippies, the Merry Pranksters, tripped on acid. But these 21st century radicals sat at the back of their bus with laptops, laughing at a YouTube video of a pet cat on LSD.

By the halfway point of their journey, somewhere in Ohio, their bus had become a smelly tangle of sleeping bodies and passionate political debates.

“Like a flea market of ideas,” was how Tong described it.

Isn't it against the law to wear a mask while committing a crime? The Ku Klux Klan is why we have these laws and these protestors are here to break the law. Too bad it won't happen here.

I'm beginning to hate these bandana faced asses more than hoody wearing asses.

A bunch of pussies wearing masks and bandanas. Be a man. Show your face. Childlike cowards is what they are.

I Voted For Obama said...

Shen Tong voted for Obama, then told him just 13 years ago, he was being shot at by the Chinese military and now he is a tech millionaire in America. Tong said he is still not happy and wants to change the system that has been very good to him.

Obama gave him a hug.

Great Post!
When driving about that's the reason I slow down when I see a car stop on the highway. Once helped ISP. Fully display your star, announce your office. The Trooper needed the extra set of cuffs.4 shit heads versus 1.At least we evened the odds.
Be Safe All, and Thank You to the Citizens that care.

Great, that brings the total number of protesters to a whopping 400!

I'm not downtown today, but who are the assholes @ Union Station with the black/navy shirts and khaki pants? Someone sent me pics and they look to be carrying drop holsters.

Imagine how stinky those buses are..........

Mt Greenwood Hillbilly said...

Black and Khakis @ Union Station are carrying pepper spray.

Who are they?

Does CPD have any of those closed trucks with a hose running from the exhaust pipe to the box? They make great paddy wagons.

@ Mt Greenwood, I would imagine it is the federal agents. They are all over the place and wearing black shirts and khaki pants. I know I have seen them all over by LaSalle Street Station and the Board of Trade
