ST. PAUL, Minn.–An anti-war protest expected to draw as many as 50,000 people will go on as planned Monday, while the Republicans scaled back their national convention due to the impending landfall of Hurricane Gustav.

The protest starts at 11 a.m. at the state capitol, and it will go from there to the XCel Energy Center, the convention hall, before heading back to the capitol for a musical performance.

The Chronicle will be on hand for the protest.

–Samuel Rubenfeld

Update: Nine people were arrested for trespassing during a protest Sunday.
