The Coalition Against NATO/G8 War & Poverty Agenda (CANG8) is organizing protests at the NATO and G8 meetings being held in Chicago in May 2012.
On August 28 2011, a coalition was formed to protest the NATO/G8 summits being held in Chicago on May 19-21 2012. Over 80 organizations participated in this founding meeting. The coalition voted to organize a legal, permitted, family friendly march and rally on May 19. Additionally, it was later decided to convene a People’s Summit on May 12-13. Both events give people a place to have their voices be heard and to share a vision of what the world could be when people are put before profit; when money goes to jobs, healthcare, education, pensions, housing and the environment, not war; when we say no to war and austerity.
