VIDEO OF SINGING PROTESTERS (CODE PINK) AT RNC 2016 IN CLEVELAND, OHIO!


Videotaped on a hot Monday July 18, 2016 evening – day 1 of RNC 2016 on Prospect Avenue near East 4th Street outside the barricaded entrance to The Q (intersection of East 4th and Prospect).


Protesters carried many signs, some of them reading:


REFUGEES WELCOME!


STOP HATRED AGAINST IMMIGRANTS!


TRUMP IS A RACIST!
Note: Code Pink -- Women for Peace is a NGO that describes itself as a "grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end U.S.-funded wars and occupations, to challenge militarism globally, and to redirect our resources into health care, education, green jobs and other life-affirming activities".
 

The taping was part of reporting on my demonstration, carrying
WELCOME REPUBLICANS, JULY 2016 and
WELCOME JIMMY DIMORA PUBLIC SQUARE signs,
carried out in Public Square a.k.a. Jimmy Dimora Square, along East 4th Street, and outside the barricaded entrance to The Q (intersection of East 4th and Prospect).




The area around East 4th Street was packed with protesters, delegates, and the press.
Every one was at their best behavior and appeared to be enjoying themselves.




The recently completed Public Square has been nicknamed the Jimmy Dimora Public Square because of corruption involved in the process.


So far, since August 2014, there have been 692 hours of demonstrations – first with the LEAVE PUBLIC SQUARE ALONE signs and now with WELCOME JIMMY DIMORA PUBLIC SQUARE signs. This is the equivalent of walking over 2,000 miles carrying a sign.


The demonstrations continue unabated with the goal of educating the public about corruption in Cuyahoga county.


Details of the campaign can be found on my blog at REALNEO:http://realneo.us/blogs/satinder-p-s-puri


P.S.: While I have very little, re. societal issues and their solutions, in common with our Republican friends -- I am welcoming them as special guests to our gorgeous Cleveland!
