White House Moves G8 Meeting from Chicago to Camp David

The White House has moved the upcoming G8 meeting from Chicago to the heavily guarded Camp David in Maryland. Chicago was preparing to hold back-to-back meetings in May of the G8 and NATO. The NATO meeting is still happening in Chicago as planned. Protest groups have been planning large demonstrations to coincide with both meetings. Joe Iosbaker, head of the United National Antiwar Committee in Chicago, described the decision to move the G8 meeting to Camp David as a major victory. He said, "The administration is taking G8 someplace where they won’t have to face the people who suffer under their policies."
