CHICAGO – As NATO officials were wrapping up their summit in Chicago, anti-NATO protesters marched to Boeing’s corporate headquarters Monday morning before turning their attention to President Obama’s campaign headquarters.

CBS Station WBBM reports the demonstrators were protesting the company’s involvement in building aircraft and missiles for the U.S. military. The protesters say Boeing is a “war machine that produces war machines.”

The protest began at 9 a.m. at Union Park. Around 10:45 a.m., a couple hundred protesters began marching toward Boeing’s headquarters.

Police officers and security personnel had taken their places outside Boeing at 11 a.m. WBBM correspondent Marissa Bailey reports a Coast Guard boat passed by along the Chicago River’s South Branch.
