RNC Protest Info

Here's the info from my sister:

Here is what I've found thus far. These are not all feminist organizations, but they seem interesting possibilities.

The Liberty Parade. Not a protest but apparently a "big rolling art explosion" on Nicollet mall in downtown Mlps.

This may not be the perfect place, but since you mention the RNC, I felt I would ask, I have been checking this blog often since McCain made the Palin anouncement, I would love to see what takes the various authors have on the pick.

Maybe all of these protesters should focus their efforts on something productive. Like getting something together to help with relief once the hurricane hits. But I wouldn't expect it from these self-servers...
