Thousands gather for RNC protest

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) ? About 2,000 protesters waving peace sign flags rallied at the state Capitol on Monday before an anti-war march to the Republican National Convention site. Hundreds of police wearing bulletproof vests and carrying billy clubs stood by.

Preparing for disruptions from a self-described anarchist group, officers in riot gear were stationed along the march route.

The anarchist group, known as the RNC Welcoming Committee, was targeted in police searches over the weekend that resulted in six arrests

"We will not tolerate lawlessness in the city of St. Paul," St. Paul Police Chief John Harrington said.

Peace activist Steve Clemens, 47, from Minneapolis said he was disturbed by the number of police.

"But we can't control that," said Clemens, who had already been arrested once ? for crossing into a restricted area during a march Sunday.


Good Grief!! police laying down the law in Denver last week....

I suppose they are DNC Anarchists?

It was the security fence at the Xcel center. They were attempting to lift a section of the fence off its hinges and get inside.

Sounds like someone needs to grow up

Kids scream for cookies until parents give in just to shut them up. Tantrums to draw attention shouldn't bring the desired results as children or they may carry this method into adulthood. I don't see how such folks can expect to bring peace abroad by disturbing it at home. What happened to "example" being the best teacher?
