Report-back from October 8th pResidential Debate Protest

I am from Portland, and happened to be in the Midewest this month, so I decided to go to the presedential debate in St Louis Missouri, yesterday.

We arrived in the Lou at 3am on the day of the protest, made it to where we were staying and slept in until 9am. Not a whole lot of sleep, but it was good enough.

The organizers of the protests had arranged a church just a block away from Washington University (where the debate was held) to hold teach-ins during the day and be the starting point for the march/parade that would push off at 4pm.
