Rahm Emanuel thought it would be a great thing to hold the NATO Summit in Chicago. Little did he know that it would be remembered as the NATOvictims Summit.
A commemoration is planned for Monday, May 21, for all of the victims of NATO violence -- violence inflicted in places like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen ... and more.
People everywhere have already started to contribute to the commemoration.
On Thursday, we took to the streets of Chicago with posters showing victims of drones killings -- many of them small children -- and encouraged local people to join the protest against NATO violence.
Already, people around the world are using the Twitter hashtag #NATOvictims to bring forward the names of the victims who are left invisible to us.
ORGANIZATIONS MOUNT CAMPAIGNS
Common Dreams reports that Amnesty International has just issued a report about #NATOvictims in Libya: "In a new report, Libya: The forgotten victims of NATO Strikes, Amnesty says that scores of Libyan civilians who were not involved in the fighting were killed and many more injured, most in their homes, as a result of NATO airstrikes. Amnesty International said that NATO has not conducted necessary investigations or even tried to establish contact with survivors and relatives of those killed."
How will YOU participate in the movement to obtain justice for the #NATOvictims who have already suffered NATO violence ... and bring about a world in which there will not BE any #NATOvictims any more?
