tense and sometimes a violent clashes took place between police and protesters who were demonstrating against the nato summit in chicago. that summit got underway today with president barack obama welcoming leaders from around the world at mccormick place >> >> i'm robert jordan >> i'm jackie bange >> more on those stories in a minute but first there is another nato protests under way right now near the art institute >> we are in front of the art institute on michigan avenue. several dozen protesters here
sitting in the middle of the street. inside is where michelle obama was hosting a dinner for the nato espousesspouses. they started marching again making through downtown. until they reached here. they have been chanting. they have been sitting here in the middle of the street for several minutes now >> we heard that they're having dinner so we figured we would
hang out for a while since we were not invited >> the message we hope to send ... one of the main topics is the afghanistan war... is not worth it anymore. >> it has been a really spirited crowd. we have not seen many problems. some of them are jumping on the median. they are letting their voices be heard. now we have another group... more protesters who are heading
we saw people getting clubsbed. the majority of the protesters are peaceful. there have been a few who have gotten out a handof hand. if the protesters are not doing what they're supposed to be doing they're taking them down and arresting them. it is shocking to see this. >> another report...julie...
>> it was 10 minutes to five when the push back began... this was a small percentage of the crowd but with a very large impact. >> dressed in black masks on immobilizing in the middle of thousands anarchist took on the chicago police department. standing with protesters as the group shouted at officers.
hecklers taunted them over and over telling the crowd to disperse repeatedly. chicago's top cop was left with little choice but to force the crowd west away from mccormick place. like a tidal wave police armed with batons pushed the protesters. the crowd would shout and pushed back. metal barricades used as shields at times. bikes in the chaos used as weapons. for more than two hours to dance between the two groups continued. but the defense became dangerous. police filed into formation. some people got hurt. and others got hurt individuals were taken down not groups. it ended close to 6:00 p.m. a handful of protesters lingered. the masses moved on into the night >> before this week and began
the big question was would tear gas ever be an option... it was a last resort... the masks when not at one point but the order was having given never given >> that standoff between police officers and protesters outside mccormick place went on for a couple of hours late this afternoon >> tom... >> an intense experience... exploding into violence. extremely graphic and bloody...
incredibly sad. no one wanted it. protesters left them no choice. at least 45 arrests. the crowd was taking so long to disperse. more of those images as we move forward >> superintendent noted some of those backpacks may have had fake blood >> the march to mccormick place to protest nato started this afternoon. groups of protesters met at various downtown hotels >> by the time they hit michigan
avenue in looked like a cohesive group. but on the front line you can see the black block protesters. the dress in layers with the top one being black. the purpose we are told is to mislead police. when they remove the black clothes they hope to blended with the crowd. behind them in line there were a number of different groups representing various causes. early this afternoon the march was very peaceful as it made its way to the rally at mccormick place >> a group of war veterans making a statement today. they claim awards in an iraqi and afghanistan are based on lies and failed policies. so they returned their medals. the veterans took to the microphone a statement than threw their medals in the direction of mccormick place and the nato summit delegates >> it has gotten worse in afghanistan >> the veterans say all of the
money spent on the bourse could have been spent on schools clinics, social programs here at home >> thousands of protesters beating probably thousands of law enforcers of the results? >> 45 arrest, according to chicago police. four officers taken to hospital. and as we saw protesters were hurt as well >> the superintendent says he is extremely proud of the office in the job that they have done tonight. he was in the thick of it the entire time giving order s. he personally assisted during an arrest. he said there was a
total of 45 arrest this afternoon. one officer was stabbed in the lineeg. they had intelligence that a group was planning to start charged the stage. his officers did a great job taking care of the protesters were looking to cause trouble. we saw him get quite emotional >> you think it is easy to ask people to do what they did... it is not. asking people to put them in harm's way knowing they will give a sultan. see benassaulted.
protesters are now awaiting charges >> police say they were planning for nato mayhem. next two more are facing terrorism charges in chicago >> also plenty was accomplished at the opening day of the nato conference we will have the complete wrap >> the big news now is the dropping temperatures tomorrow ... break
