RNC One-Year Anniversary Info Packet Now Available
02 Sep 2009 05:38 GMT
In anticipation of the one-year anniversary of the 2008 RNC in St. Paul, Minnesota, we've compiled this packet for the media and other interested observers.
One year after the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn., the aftermath remains newsworthy. The RNC was for many of us our taste of a police state; the astounding violence against protesters, bystanders, journalists and others directed by Sheriff Bob Fletcher and other authorities shocked and radicalized many of us. We have since come to realize that these instances of raids, intimidation and violence play out regularly in our society, particularly in communities of color and working class communities, and will almost assuredly replay themselves at upcoming summits such as the G20 in Pittsburgh later this September. Thus, keeping the RNC in our collective consciousness is critical.
