Tent State plans to be a sea of tents serving as an alternative university, staging area, and potential model for the future. Major protests and actions are planned, plus a music festival with Rage Against the Machine and more, all this during the upcoming Democratic National Convention.
Let’s hope they make a serious antiwar impact and that no one gets their skulls bashed, as security will be at supermax level around the convention center.
But dang, I do question the wisdom of naming it after a protest, Kent State, where protesters got shot dead. What are they trying to accomplish with the name? I don’t get it.
