nato kicks off

Most of my assignments today fell outside of the biggest activity on the first day of NATO protests downtown, but I ran into the tail end of the action on the Michigan Avenue Bridge.

After a march through the Loop, Chicago police stopped demonstrators from crossing the bridge and moved everyone off it. I liked this image of a pedestrian carrying flowers moving on through the mess as if it was a normal, quiet Friday rather than a downtown filled with dozens of police officers on every corner and helicopters hovering overhead all day.
