NATO summit protests in Chicago

Demonstrators prepared Monday to launch another round of protests in the final hours of the NATO summit in Chicago, targeting Boeing headquarters and a suburban community that could become the site of a detention facility to hold illegal immigrants.

On the second and last day of the international meeting, commuters heading into Chicago’s  Loop business district endured extra security measures and changes to train and bus routes. Many downtown offices told employees to stay home because of traffic jams  and the risk of more protests after a weekend of demonstrations that drew thousands into the streets.

Most of the protests have been peaceful, but some minor clashes broke out Sunday, when a group of protesters scuffled with police at the end of a long march.

Monday’s protests were expected to be far smaller, but authorities maintained a stepped-up presence throughout downtown and surrounding areas.
