Add comment on:Day One of the 2012 RNC: Roving Radical Dance Party, 8/27/12: photos
Earlier on the Day One of the 2012 Republican National convention there had been two marches. The first was the permitted March on the RNC, confronting the prejudicial policies of republicans, demostrats, and our electoral system in general. Approximately 300 people marched through downtown Tampa to the designated "Free Speech Zone," with rallies on both ends of the march. The second was the unpermitted March for Our Lives, demanding economic justice for this country's poor people. It was about 500 people strong with a rally at Romneyville beforehand, but the march for economic justice was stopped by an overwhelming force of hundreds of riot police and deputies. That evening at 11pm, another unpermitted protest happened in nearby Ybor City, which is inside the northeast corner of the RNC security "Event Zone." That was the the Roving Radical Dance Party, the most lively and defiant action of the day.
