DNC Sunday Aug. 24
Unconventional Denver shut down the streets of the Mile High City on the eve of the Democratic National Convention. At 9 a.m. nearly 2,000 people marched against the war in a Recreate '68 march, followed by a Funk the War protest by the Alliance for Real Democracy. Unconventional Denver then reclaimed the streets in an action with the support of more than 600 people. The action made its presence felt in front of three delegate hotels and took over the 16th Street Mall and numerous intersections before finishing at the Civic Center Park. Before the march ended there where multiple standoffs with police, with one arrest.
