Request for Video of the St John's Parade

Did you attend the St John's Parade? Do you have any video footage you would be willing to share?
As you may know from reading this site, Code Pink was denied entry to the parade on the grounds that they were too "political." At the same time, Earl Blumenauer, Mayor Potter, Sheriff Giusto, Chief Sizer, Senator Carter, and countless other purely political machines were allowed to march. (Along with right wing church groups and chamber of commerce folks.) The Portland Indy video Collective intends to look into this further. If you have any footage of the political candidates who were allowed to participate in this parade, please contact us.
