Commentary :: DNC
What's Happening in Boston?
26 Jul 2004
Numbers and Happenings
Hi from California. Wish I could be there. I was at the DNC protest in 2000 in LA and I'll bet it was a very different scene. I would like to know how many people are there. How many on our side and how many on the right-wing side? How are the delegates treating the protesters? the cops look scary, are they? It's kind of a strange time to be protesting, (even though I agree with it), because everybody is so "Anybody but Bush". Are you getting positive or negative comments? What's going on there?

See you in NY

Yep. This may be the single worst action since Seattle. Memo to the Black Tea Society. Building a great website, designing cool, edgy flyers, can't replace the real grassroots coalition building necessary to pull this off. Go back and look at the work that CLAC-CASA in Quebec did - months in advance. The anarchists in CLAC called for respecting both diversity of tactics, and opinions, and collaborating whenever possible depite serious differences with others mobilizing for the FTAA. Something that seemed to be lacking with BTS. Too bad.

BTW, the action that seemed to shine today was the guerilla street theatre action inside the protest pen. Kudos to those who pulled this off. Very powerful - and effective in illustrating how much of a police state we are grappling with.

"...and collaborating whenever possible depite serious differences with others mobilizing for the FTAA."
