Permitted Dissent in the Streets of St. Paul (part 1 of 2)

by ~Bradley (bradley [at] riseup.net)
On September 1st, over ten thousand people marched in the streets of St. Paul, Minnesota to protest the Republican National Convention while demanding peace, justice and equality. The permitted demonstration, with over two years of planning, was organized by The Coalition to March on the RNC and Stop the War. The Coalition is made up of more than 130 organizations, including anti-war coalitions in the U.S, immigrant rights organizations, trade unions, low income and community groups.

It seems strange that the march route included a U-turn.

A young woman was suffering from heat exhaustion and had to sit down on a corner to recover. These two corporate media assholes, Chris O'Connell (right) and the obnoxious camera person from ABC Channel 5 (KSTP), spent at least ten minutes trying to capture video of the young woman, despite her request to not be filmed. Several people prevented the aggressive corporate media from filming her.
