Re-Create 68 Update on DNC Protest
Re-Create 68 the Democratic National Committee protest group has been meeting in Denver, CO and has set up a web site for all the Loony Liberal Activists to "join us in the streets of Denver as we resist a two-party system that allows imperialism and racism to continue unrestrained."
The group which claims it's predominantly youthful insists it's not a throwback from the 60's. Re-Create 68 claims it is a clearinghouse to disseminate information for resistance.
Locally known as All Nations Alliance, says it's been active in the anti-war movement, anti-racism, anti-imperialism rallies, including the G-8 protest in Denver.
According to the Re-Create 68 web site, "...We intend to recreate that revolutionary feeling and pick-up where our predecessors left off." Other information for the protesters includes Street Tactics which answers questions about such topics as: Civil Disobedience; Shields, Walls and Other Useful Tricks to Wheat Pasting.

Speaking to reporters following the countdown rally Denver Mayor Hickenlopper responded to questions about the pace of fund raising for the convention? Conceding that money is trickling in, they missed their first $7.5 Million Dollar deadline in corporate and private support and now must raise $15 Million Dollars due just before Christmas.
