Day One of the 2012 RNC: March on the RNC, 8/27/12: photos
Dave Id
The theme for Day One of demonstrations at this year's Republican National Convention was Economic Rights. The Coalition to March On The RNC organized an officially permitted march from Perry Harvey Sr. Park at 1200 North Orange Avenue to the "Free Speech Zone." The "Free Speech Zone" is a vacant lot below East Walton Street at South Nebraska Avenue, currently surrounded by new fencing which allows only one way in or out. Leased for over $50,000 by the city of Tampa, the location is purportedly to grant protesters a place to mass within sight of the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the primary venue the 2012 RNC. Perhaps 300 people participated in the rally before the march, the march itself, and the rally held at the "Free Speech Zone" after the march. Up to 1000 law enforcement personnel boxed in and directed the march the entire way.
