The clowns are coming to Chicago! Lots of clowns are converging in Chicago at this moment to join in the protests against NATO and participate in the May 18 rally organized by National Nurses United.

ClownBloq formed last week after AdBusters, the activist organization behind Occupy Wall Street, suggested protesters start a "laugh riot" during the NATO summit.
