Subject

Wilson pro-war rally in Chicago turns violent as NWP protesters arrive and are set upon by the crowd.

Description

This article talks about Wilson calling the nation together in a time of war in Europe during a speech in Chicago. After his arrival, but before his speech, NWP protesters arrived carrying signs calling on Wilson to endorse women's suffrage. After Wilson had entered the auditorium to give his speech the crowd set upon the protesters taking their signs and breaking them and beating many of the female protesters. The NWP released a statement, cited in the article, that called out the police for refusing to subdue the crowd. Allegations of police indifference to the fate of protesters was to be a frequent refrain of the NWP.
The section detailing the NWP starts at the beginning of the full section after scrolling down through the thin vertical section.
