actions & protests dnc & rnc actions


I just got an update from a variety of marchers.
Tonight they are staying in a union hall where it seems the main focus and fun is the fancy meeting room enclosed by sound proof glass where currently the medics are trying to have a meeting. I think you have to be there to understand, but there seems to be a lot of laughing involved.

The march has over 100 people now and incredible energy. The support "has been pretty overwhelming" one marcher claimed. As they get closer to NYC the people and ideas are flowing into their theatre piece. Zapatista groups will be joining them in their solidarity action, as well as a huge bike crew and community members. See nyc.indymedia.org for more info!

I am happy they sound so upbeat and happy. It is truely inspirational the support they are getting.
