Just shy of two months until the kick-off of May’s NATO Summit, and security details for the city of Chicago remain unknown.
Leaders from around the world will gather on May 20 for an event saturated with excitement, chaos, and, of course, mass crowds of protestors. Fifty thousand protestors are expected to set up camp in Grant Park.
While protestors may have hit their stride this year with the Occupy demonstrations, the NATO Summit is causing several concerns, including among academic circles. The possibility of protestors interfering with campus universities has been a recent topic of conversation.
“The university is open to protest,” said Bob Wachowski, the Director of Public Safety at DePaul University. He advised to “be wary of outsiders” since they may cause problems and students could get caught in the middle.
