Protesters upset with NATO Summit security plan

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Activists planning to protest this month's NATO Summit say the U.S. Secret Service's security plan leaves authorities room to put in place even heavier restrictions at the last moment.

Protest organizer Andy Thayer says protest groups are particularly upset they aren't being allowed to get within sight of the summit venue. Thayer says protesters will be kept about three blocks away from the building within the sprawling complex where the leaders are meeting.

The Secret Service released the security plan Friday. The number of places closed to public access grows as it gets closer to the May 20-21 summit. The list includes major roads, museums and boating restrictions on Lake Michigan. Among roadways that will be shut down is a stretch of Lake Shore Drive near McCormick Place.
