Chicago: Protesters head towards Michigan Ave. during a 15,000-strong march against the NATO summit, May 20, 2012.
On May 5 military prosecutors released 16 women, and on May 10, 17 men arrested at an earlier demonstration, on grounds that they were students. Adel Khattab was one of those released, and later told Human Rights Watch his story.humanrightswatch)
About that police brutality indeed… Here’s a member of the NYPD caught on camera boasting about how he’s going to beat protesters. He actually says, “My little nightstick’s going to get a workout tonight!” The officer then strikes the ground with his baton.

I hope everyone is as outraged by this as I am. We had arrests last night in St. Louis last night as well and now they are refusing to set bond. Pass the word we need more people in St. Louis tonight. Solidarity!
