by Mike & James
A photo essay in three parts. Part 1: Rally & Breakaway.
1.jpg
"Thank you to the thousands of people who courageously faced 10 ton buses, concussion grenades, tear gas, pepper spray, batons, charging horses, gas masks, rubber bullets, and all of the tools of repression and intimidation that were used yesterday to repress the public in this supposed democracy.
Your direct actions stand in stark contrast to the conventioneers inside the Xcel Energy Center, passively dragging the party line and the rest of this world down with it.
We are inspired by the extraordinary people who stopped buses, blocked highway ramps, and breached concrete barriers to reclaim the streets and recapture the space of downtown St Paul" - From RNC WC, September 2, 2008

Full report to come. Here, find a photo essay in three parts. Part 1: Rally & Breakaway. Part 2: RNC Blockaded. Part 3: Battle for the Streets.
