What's goin' on Denver

This is a glimpse of some activities planned for Denver.

I must start with the disclaimer that I am working with Alliance for Real Democracy....with the exception of the rally and march on the Sunday all events are those with our involvement. The Alliance came about because of a concern among many Colorado activists and groups over the lack of stated commitment by Recreate68 to non-violence. I will say that I have been arrested with Glen of Recreate68 and respect him.

The core of our activity will be Tent State University.
Originally Tent State was to be in Denver's City Park.
However,; negotiations on many issues with the City of Denver
broke down. As a result Tent State and we, have moved.
The new site will be
Cuernavaca Park
http://denver.playcoed.com/location.php? id=3
..less than 1 mile from Pepsi Center..
(note..as of today the city of Denver has removed their official
link to this park...coincidence?
http://www.denvergov.org/South_Platte_Ri ver/template21142.asp

So...in the schedule below..whenever you read City Park it will be Cuernavaca Park..

Big news today was the announcement that Rage Against the Machine
will be giving a free show with other bands..

Although the Alliance is hosting a Funk the War Action while the Recreate68 action may still be taking place..I did post their action...we did delay our start out of respect..

Note...There are actions that are scheduled that I am not at liberty to share at this time...
This is what I can post in regard to ARD
