The host of the “It’s the End of the World as We Know It”, gave me his Rage Against the Machine concert ticket last night, feeling bad that I was arrested on Monday. The concert was amazing, thanks subMedia!!! Before the show began, lights above the concert stage read “RNC FUCK YOU”. The crowd cheered.
RATM began the first song dressed in orange jump suits with black hoods on their heads. Tom Morello mentioned at one point that the US Federal Government has broken two countries, Iraq and Afghanistan, based on lies and misinformation. They tell us now that some broken windows in downtown St. Paul will constitute “conspiracy to riot in the furtherance of terrorism”, a charge being pushed against the RNC Welcoming Committee, which is an anarchist and anti-authoritarian group who invited activists to shut down the city of St. Paul during the convention.
