Supporters take part in the 'No to NATO' protest march in Newport, south Wales, Saturday, Aug. 30, 2014. Around 1,000 protesters have marched through the streets of Newport ahead of next week's NATO summit. More than 150 heads of state and ministers will attend the two-day event at Newport's Celtic Manor Resort. The event will be "uncharted territory" for police - while Wales' First Minister Carwyn Jones has said it will be "momentous" in his country's history. However, its presence in the principality - and the UK - has been met with strong opposition from a number of anti-war groups as well as left-wing organizations. A large crowd gathered outside Newport Crown Court at around midday before going on a march through the Welsh city. As well as strong Welsh contingent, protesters came from as far as Washington, Belgium, France and Ireland.
