This is a three-part documentary of the peace protest and parade in Minnesota outside the Republican National Convention, shot and edited by my brother-in-law. He said that there was small group of anarchists who were involved in rock-throwing and violence, but they seemed to not be part of the main group and kept themselves separate from the main body of protesters, and of course the MSM all ran over there with their cameras and that’s what we saw on the 6 o’clock news.
Part 1 contains footage of the peaceful anti-war protest by 20,000 people, interviews with and speeches by various people including ex-members of the military who served in Iraq.
Part 2 has some footage of the police posted on the street, and you will note that they are not wearing any identification, no badges, no numbers, no names. They are dressed in black riot gear and their faces are obscured by their face-masks and dark glasses.
Part 3 has the parade and interviews with organizers and volunteers, one from a group who walked to St Paul from Chicago. I especially liked the ladies who sang the song near the beginning of this section.
He was headed home when the incident on the bridge began on the last day.
