Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration pulled the plug Tuesday on the only NATO protest planned for a work day in the Loop business district, revoking permission for a May 18 Daley Plaza rally barely a week before world leaders are to arrive in Chicago.

The National Nurses United group that planned the demonstration and other protest groups called the move a violation of free speech and said it fits a pattern of City Hall trying to marginalize demonstrations against the May 20-21 gathering.

“If the nurses are a threat to Rahm Emanuel, then heaven help the U.S.,” said RoseAnn DeMoro, executive director of National Nurses United. “He’s been trying to move us into an obscure forum.”

In a May 8 letter to the nurses group, the city said the group’s mid-day parade along Michigan Avenue downtown can go on as planned with one major difference – instead of ending with a rally in the heart of the Loop, participants must swing east and gather in Grant Park for their rally.
