From what I can tell on this morning’s news, it looks like the mainstream press did an admirable job of ignoring one of yesterday’s three biggest events at the DNC: the spontaneous, peaceful march by 3000-4000 demonstrators, led by Rage Against the Machine and an assemblage of uniformed veterans against the war, on Pepsi Center and the DNC.
I’ll come back and editorialize later – bet your sweet ass on that – but for now let’s just allow yesterday’s Tent State march on the DNC speak for itself. NOTE: The sound quality was originally a little muddy, owing to a) I don’t have great equipment, and b) I was in the middle of a demonstration. Many thanks to Mike Smith (aka fikshun), he of Fiction 8 fame, who used his considerable technical skills to clean the audio up.
