As NATO in Chicago continues, so do the protests. Streets are closed along Lake Shore Drive, Congress, and Michigan Ave as protestors take to the streets waving flags, chanting, and defying the police. The city had a post-apocalyptic feel to it as residents and tourists alike tried to avoid the downtown area. Plows lined Balbo Ave from the train tracks beyond Lake Shore Drive past the bike trains to the lake itself. Dressed in riot gear, police, horses and K-9s were prepared to handle any situation that were to arise. For every civilian walking the street, there was at least one representative of law enforcement from either Chicago Police, State troopers, Secret Service, or private security.
