People from all over the country are marching from the DNC which took place in Boston to the RNC which is taking place in New York.

Marchers are living, sleeping, eating and making decisions together.

Many actions have taken place on the march, such as a demonstration against the Seaborg corporation, singing Oppositionial Defiance Disorder inside Walmart, and chating, "While Your Shopping Bombs are Dropping" inside a shopping mall.

Food has been both donated and dumpstered. Seeds of Peace is helping to cook.

Members of the community are encouraged to donate money, food, medical supplies, skateboards, shoes and media coverage of the demonstration.

Street Threater is being organized in solidarity with Zapatistas. Street Medics are helping out all along the way. Decisions are made through concensus.

The march has been an experience in anarchist process. Leadership has emerged from lots of different people. The DNC2RNC is an example to the world that an anarchist community can exist.

Change the system!

We also hear, "Don't Just Vote" by Ryan Harvey followed by audio from a DNC2RNC video from the 16th day of the march from Boston to NYC.

In addition to discussing the DNC2RNC march, Ryan also talks about writing songs, some of his inspirations, organizing as a youth in Towson, MD (which 'earned' him visits from the FBI), increased police repression (like shutting down activist art spaces), under-ground and above-ground activism, copyrights and distributing his music, organizing in locations all across the US, the US government's tactics for supressing dissent, knowing our history and being a folk musician.

After the interivew, you will hear Ryan Harvey's Open Song to George Bush.

DNC2RNC Marches On

The DNC2RNC march is a 258 mile movement from the Democratic National Convention in Boston, MA, USA to the Republican National Convention in New York City. The march started on July 31th and is 24 days into it, having gone over 200 miles so far. In that time span the march has connected with many local communities, learned more about working and living as a community, and experienced together many new and wonderful things.

Regular updates [ 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 ] have been posted to various IMC's, and an impromptu Indymedia team has produced daily video journals [ 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 ], a commercial and a preview of the march. They were also subjected to heavy rains while a tropical storm breezed through the area and stood strong, marching through it all.

The march will enter New York City on August 26th, three days before the United for Peace and Justice march. They have prepared a theatrical entrance in the spirit of Zapatismo and have issued a statement about it. To find out more on the march watch for regular updates at DNC2RNC, NYC IMC, St. Louis IMC, and Portland IMC.
