Making signs for RNC protest

Tampa, FL – Student got together here, August 18, to make some of the thousands of signs that will be carried at the August 27 march on the Republican National Convention. The protest will demand good jobs, health-care, affordable education, equality and peace.

“We are going all out to get ready for the march on the RNC,” stated Skye Schmelzer, a protest organizer and member of Student for a Democratic Society. “In just 9 days, students and others are going to make a powerful statement against the Republican agenda, and the agenda of the 1% that runs this country.”

The August 27 RNC protest will begin with a 10:00 a.m. rally at Perry Harvey Sr. Park, located at 1200 N. Orange Ave in Tampa, FL.
