Tent State protests planned for Democratic National Convention

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.

  1. Well, I’ve made my views on that clear. I will *not* live in a yurt, tent, or any other windy, temporary shelter (except when backpacking, of course!)
