Nobody for President, Everyone for Liberation: at the Democratic National Convention – Denver

Flags. Banners. Suit-wearing delegates from fifty states. 15,000 media people (not sure I count). Mountains all around and yet 90 degrees.

I am here in Denver for the Democratic National Convention. Let’s hope that I am not here at any point during the week. Though if they would let me in with a camera…

I was also told by a close source that Denver City Council quickly passed an ordinance in the past two weeks making it illegal to carry any type of human or animal waste, whether it be piss or shit or manure or in any type of bottle or vat, since they got wind of one group’s brilliant idea to chuck said waste at delegates and/or representatives in an affable “you’re full of shit” communique.

I’ll be taking photos all week and will post the best here and more elsewhere. I’ll also be contributing to the independent media scene in Denver by posting to Colorado’s Independent Media Center. But look for a daily wrap-up/unwind.
