Day one of the NATO summit in Chicago has been marked by mass demonstrations that resulted in fierce clashes with police. A dozen people were reportedly injured and around 60 arrested after officers started using batons to disperse thousands-strong crowds. RT’s Anastasia Churkina was in the middle of what became the biggest rally in a week of anti-war protests. And co-director of the anti-war International Action Center Sara Flounders is also in Chicago, and says the action taken against the demonstrators shows NATO feels threatened by their cause.
