Protesters Get Into Two RNC Events ... (So Can You)

Savoir Faire | (from the Open Newswire) "Me and my cohorts just got back from an Republican National Convention event held uptown at the Club Mirage on Dyckman Street ... A combination of conservative business attire and an attitude that ‘Hey, of course we belong at this event’ got us in no proble and past the registration table ... After covering the bathroom with our own agit-prop, we cleared the table of their Bush crap and replaced it with our own ...

"The group that got in this event are normal people-just like you. Using the internet and keeping our eyes open, we were able to find out about this event earlier today. We encourage others to do the same. Even standing at these events and holding signs and flyering is a good thing. The battle may be in the streets in late August but lets not lose the battle of the story in the meantime. This event’s press release is here. Events and press releases are announced usually a few hours beforehand here."
