Massive Protests Planned
The 2008 DNC in Denver is being promoted by activists as “Recreate ’68,” referring to the 1968 DNC in Chicago, where Abbie Hoffman and the Yippies nominated Pigasus the pig as their presidential nominee, and riot police got a good fill of hippie-head-cracking. A diverse national collective is now organizing to bring large-scale uprising to Denver in 2008. As their website states:
Join us in the streets of Denver as we resist a two-party system that allows imperialism and racism to continue unrestrained. We will demand change by making the Democratic Convention of 1968 look like a small get together in 2008!
Additional information can be found by visiting the group’s virtual community convergence center at www.recreate68.org.

Liberals protesting against liberals....it's going to be a great week.
About 1,000 anti-war protesters marched toward the site of the Democratic National Convention Sunday in Denver, in the first of at least five such rallies planned this week by the group Recreate 68.

It turns out it was the Anarchists and Maoists who were acting up. They even want to end the occupation of Hawaii and Puerto Rico.
Cindy Sheehan spoke earlier but nobody covered it. So much for her 15 minutes.
All in all nearly no coverage on the day they should have got the most. When the Convention is going they will get even less coverage.
