    A south side church says it will support NATO protesters by letting them use their lawn as a camp ground.

    The Trinity Episcopal Church is located at 125 E. 26th Street.  It's not far from McCormick Place where the NATO summit will take place beginning May 19. The church said it's inviting protesters who are coming from outside Chicago and who may not have a place to stay to set up camp on their for the duration of the summit.

    The church doesn't want to cause a major disruption in the neighborhood. To prepare neighbors for the sight of people sleeping in tents they're hold a Town Hall meeting at the church this Thursday beginning at 7 p.m.

    Organizers said camping protesters have agreed to guidelines, among them no drugs or alcohol, and no loud noise.
