An anti-war and anti-NATO demonstration was held in Chicago yesterday.
REUTERS reported that police said four police officers were injured and 45 demonstrators arrested after baton-wielding police clashed with anti-war protesters marching on the NATO summit in Chicago on Sunday but a lawyer’s group assisting protesters challenged police figures, saying at least 12 protesters were hurt, some with head wounds from police batons, and more than 60 people detained.
The protesters in Chicago’s anti-NATO demonstration said that police were brutal and attacked peaceful demonstrators.
Protesters in Bersih 3.0 riot in Kuala Lumpur also claimed the same but it was some of them who started the violence act.
