Below is a schedule of the main protest events and actions during the Democratic National Convention. Far from being complete, this schedule is limited to those which either RAIM is participating on some level or those which we feel are otherwise noteworthy.
[This is a limited online edition of our schedule. A fuller one will be available at the protests]

RAIM-Denver Discussion Group: Anti-Imperialist Philosophy and Practice
RAIM-Denver will be holding a 3 person panel on anti-imperialism. We’ll be talking about imperialism as global system, its social and material implications and offer practical advice drawn from our own in experiences in organizing and activism. Followed by a Q and A.
9am Rude Park, one block south of Colfax on Federal (begin), to Lincoln Park (12th and Mariposa).
Immigrant Rights Rally and March
This march will no doubt be tinged with integrationist, pro-amerika sentiment. RAIM-Denver will be there supporting Mexican National Liberation and agitating for anti-imperialism.
