I'm not sure where this goes exactly. Go ahead and move if it needs to be mods.

Milwaukee Red Cross Told To Prep For Chicago Evacuation During NATO Summit

CHICAGO (CBS) – Is there a secret plan to evacuate some residents of Chicago in the event of major trouble during the NATO summit next month? CBS 2 has uncovered some evidence that there is. It comes from the Milwaukee area branch of the American Red Cross.

CBS 2 News has obtained a copy of a Red Cross e-mail sent to volunteers in the Milwaukee area.

It said the NATO summit “may create unrest or another national security incident. The American Red Cross in southeastern Wisconsin has been asked to place a number of shelters on standby in the event of evacuation of Chicago.”

According to a chapter spokesperson, the evacuation plan is not theirs alone.

“Our direction has come from the City of Chicago and the Secret Service,” she said.

Officials at Chicago’s Office of Emergency Management and Communication said the directive did not come from them.

The U.S. Secret Service did not return calls for comment.

Some downtown residents told CBS 2’s Mike Parker that the news has them on edge.

Brad Klein said it is “very unnerving. I feel a little bit unsafe, just a bit more than a little bit. It doesn’t make me feel like I want to be in the city during the NATO conference.”

An executive with the Service Employees International Union, who trains members in preparation for the summit, thinks such a plan might be “over the top.”

SEIU Local 1 training director Tom Dobry said, “This could be a lot like Y2K – a lot of hype and buildup. People will say, ‘that was it?’ Not a big deal.”

I think it's one of two things:

1) Thorough preparation for a worst-case scenario. If something happens, it is likely #2.

2) Preparation for a false flag event. If nothing happens, it is probably #1.

Very interesting post.

Perhaps TPTB have sufficient intelligence to believe that some sort of strike may be coming.

I don't think for one minute that it may be due to civil unrest alone.

Out of interest why have you posted this in predictions?

Woops apologies for the last, I forgot you said you wasn't sure where it should go.

This worries me being that NATO Summits:

1. Are notorious for drawing anti-Globalist/Elitist dissenters
2. Are a National Special Security Event
3. National Special Security Events are protected by the Secret Service
4. A law was recently passed in March making it a felony to merely "disrupt" an NSSE or even "knowingly" enter a cordoned off area without clearance.
5. Such a felony can carry a 10 year sentence.

Well if I lived in, or even near, Chicago I would leave during that time if possible. If not possible to leave for that time, I would be watching for signs of any problems beginning and get out of there before it was determined that the evacuation was mandatory. No way would I want to put my life in their hands. Those evacuation centers can be horrible.
