UPDATE: RNC Welcoming Committee Convergence Center in St. Paul Raided by Police 8/29

The RNC Welcoming Committee created a "Swarm, Seize, Stay" strategy which involves dividing St. Paul, Minnesota into sectors to facilitate coordination of blockades and other creative resistance to the RNC. Northern California radicals have banded together as "Unconventional Action (UA) in the Bay" and collectively chosen to adopt SECTOR 4 in downtown St. Paul. Sector 4 is one of seven sectors that surround the Xcel Center, home of the 2008 Republican National Convention. Organizers from coast to coast representing a variety of different communities are adopting other sectors.

UA in the Bay recently announced a Barricade Building Contest with categories that include Biggest-Baddest, Best Use of Found Materials, Best Use of Vehicle(s), Best Strategic Location, Most Creative, and Most Difficult to Remove. In addition, three street intersections in Sector 4 have been named as convergence points for the morning of September 1st before demonstrations are expected to become mobile.

A pre-RNC UA in the Bay meeting was held in St. Paul on August 30th.
