Two Weeks of Actions, Workshops Planned for RNC
by Anonymous Monday, Aug. 20, 2012 at 12:35 PM

It's 2012, and rather than it meaning the end of the world, it means more political conventions and a focus on electoral politics within the United States. But activists in Tampa Bay are preparing to show an alternative to politics as usual through creative actions and teach-ins opposing the Republican National Convention while offering up a vision of what is possible at large mobilizations and in the world.

Two Weeks of Actions...

The Republican National Convention is set to meet in Tampa on August 27th-30th. The Democratic National Convention is meeting in Charlotte days later: September 4th – 6th. Fifty million dollars has been allocated to both cities for “security” during the conventions. As usual, these conventions will be met by demonstrators who call for putting people and the planet before politics.

In Tampa, a Food Not Bombs World Gathering precedes the convention. Food Not Bombs chapters will be convening in preparation to feed the thousands of expected protesters coming for the convention, but will also be hosting workshops, skillshares, concerts and actions, including an action against weapons manufacturer Raytheon. For a complete list of scheduled events at the Food Not Bombs Gathering click here.

Actions during the convention include a March on the RNC, March for Our Lives, Roving Radical Dance Party, Really Really Free Market, and Fix Shit Up @ the RNC day. Earth First has also put out a call for eco actions during the RNC to highlight environmental destruction and devastation. To see all scheduled events visit ResistRNC’s events page. Immediately following the convention, many plan to caravan to Charlotte to Occupy the DNC.
