Voices of Dissent at the Republican National Convention

Posted by thenorthstar on September 6, 2008

September 16th


Several Lansing area activists attended the protests against the Republican National Convention (RNC) in St. Paul this month. They were there to protests the conventions because they are treated as an important political event when they are nothing more than a big party without any substance. People want to see a genuine political process that is about more than posturing and rhetoric. There is much to talk about in regards to the protest but for this event we will focus on two main topics. 1. The different anti-authoritarian groupings of people and how they related to the rest of the protestors, and 2. The state sponsored violence that was brought down upon those who voiced their dissent. Please join us for this discussion, slide show and honest look at what took place in St. Paul outside the dog and pony show we know as the republican national convention.
