NATO Summit Protesters Get Conditional Permit

After a drawn out battle, a coalition of protesters is poised to get a legal permit from the city to march against the NATO summit on May 20.

Joe Iosbaker, an organizer at the Coalition Against NATO/G8 War & Poverty Agenda, or CANG8, says that the Chicago Department of Transportation has conditionally agreed to a proposal by CANG8 to start a march May 20 at the Petrillo Band Shell in Grant Park and end at the McCormick Place convention center, the site of the two-day NATO summit.
