Minneapolis has been the site of some of the most intense protesting America has seen in a long time. Video shot from amongst the protesters getting hit with tear gas and shock grenades recalls images more familiar in France or Russia than in the United States.
And Rage Against the Machine has done it’s part to incite its fans to protest, as well. They first tried to play an impromptu performance outside the RNC that was dispersed by police. And last night, their concert ended in another spontaneous protest in the streets of Minneapolis.
Take it for what it’s worth. But personally, I think change requires many levels of pressure to accomplish.
