THE SUPPLEMENT – brought to you by the Human Rights anti-Party
The thirty-eighth G-eight summit is coming up next month. Police in Chicago have made the decision to use sound cannons against protesters. The LRAD, or Long Range Acoustic Device, was developed for use by the military, but has since been used to shoot civilians from 2009 and on. The LRAD may be capable of causing permanent hearing loss. President Obama has moved the location of the G-eight summit from Chicago to Camp David, where it will be inaccessible to the public. There has been speculation that the move was a response to protests being planned in Chicago, but Obama says that wasn’t the reason for the change.
