"Raid Montage" is a recounting of the Night of Terror by a number of people. Backing music is of course the Imperial March

RNC Battle Mix" is a blow by blow account from Twin Cities Indymedia razorwire of the mid-day actions, as read out on a phone by a DC activist for radio broadcast. Intro to this is set to stirring music from the Lord of the Rings-as the Elves rush the Orcs in battle!

Cop cars smashed, Macy's trashed, debris dragged into the streets to block pursuit, delegates and delegate busses turned back, and more!

**Nicole reports from the field of battle***

**Jay reports as antiwar march steps off w/10,000 plus marchers**

***Isis reports ***
on police mass detentions, mass
arrests, and fears of raids on Food Not Bombs(she thought they were raided, but I could find no confirmation. Food hard to come by as she reported, but reportedly available later.A rumor of a raid of Seeds of peace was proven false.
