DNC Events: Into the Streets!

INTO THE STREETS!

The week of July 26 to 29 is the week of the Democratic National Convention. In order to ensure our voices are heard, two separate days of marches are currently planned. These events are to be opening and closing events for the protests against the DNC.

If your organization would like to participate in these coalition marches either as a group or to speak/perform on the stages, please contact us. We still have room for additional speakers/musicians at the rallies and would like to have as much diversity in speakers and performers as possible.

On Monday, July 26 we will kick off convention week demanding an “End to all Police Brutality, Prison Abuses, and the Patriot Act” with a rally on Boston Common, a march to the Fleet Center, and eventually to Government Center. Let’s make it clear that we do not accept the continued erosion of civil rights and the further militarization of the police force.

On Thursday, July 29, we will march to demand "No Blood For Oil- End All Occupations": an end to the Iraqi occupation and the return of the troops. We will begin at Copley Square, and again march to the Fleet Center, and then to Boston Common for the final rally. Let’s make our message clear that the continuation of this war is unacceptable- under either party.

Bring your signs, banners, flags, puppets, and, above all, your spirit of dissent!

Who are you all? I mean, I know you want this to be a coalition thing, but who initiated this? Who else is involved with the effort?

A number of groups are contributing to this. The Bl(A)ck Tea folks helped to get the permits squared away, UfPJ, AFSC, Billionaire For Bush, and the Kuchinich people are all involved.
