The final major protest of the NATO summit happened outside Boeing headquarters in the Loop. Protesters marched to the building from Union Park with the intention of feeding the hungry all day.
Boeing, which was targeted for protest by demonstrators because of the company's involvement in producing military equipment, didn't shut down their offices but did allow employees the option of working from home. Protesters staged a "die-in" in front of Boeing headquarters and tossed paper airplanes around.
The marchers—ostensibly having completed their mission to feed the hungry—later headed to Obama 2012 campaign headquarters for more protests, before heading massing up agains and marching west on Randolph, south on Michigan toward Jackson. A Chicagoist source estimated the crowd at around 500 people.
