Big Protest Planned for RNC’s First Day

leave a comment »

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.

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

People Watching (And More) In Denver

with one comment

DENVER–To just use text for presenting the story of the Democratic National Convention in Denver would be incomplete. I do not claim by any means to be a professional photographer, but following are some pictures from at and around the Pepsi Center, the home of the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche, and the site of the DNC.
