52. Chicago's Cracking Down on Protests but Nurses Union Still Planning Huge Rally with Tom Morello

G-8 leaders may seclude themselves at Camp David, but National Nurses United and groups will continue with their plans for a massive rally and protest on May 18 in Chicago...Activists claimed victory when the White House moved the G-8 to Camp David. Thousands of people had vowed to protest the meetings and the city of Chicago was struggling to prepare for security concerns with both G-8 and the NATO summit happening so close together. Success has only fueled their efforts for continued Chicago demonstrations.

The May 18 rally was originally planned to begin after a march from the hotel the nurses will be staying at and holding a conference. Last week, Chicago officials decided to pull the permit and force the rally to Grant Park, a location that would have pushed the protest out of view of the more business-friendly downtown. Ultimately both sides reached an agreement that would allow the rally to remain at Daley Plaza but cancel any plans to march in the downtown area.

National Nurses United Executive Director RoseAnn DeMoro said the ordeal started after the organization placed in an ad in the Chicago Reader. DeMoro said the Chicago officials claim they were worried about former Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello drawing hundreds of thousands of people to Daley Plaza. Yet the nurses have advertised the rally with flyers and emails for a couple of months now, boasting of Morello’s attendance. Morello responded to the city’s claim by saying he should run against Rahm Emanuel if the mayor is afraid of his popularity.

"I've always been welcome in Chicago. You know who is not welcome?" asked Morello. "The G-8."
