Two clips on my site related to the RNC protests. First, caricature as protest: the Billionaires for Bush. Among their rallying cries - Lower the Minimum Wage! No Justice, No Problem! In this clip they urge watching more Fox TV, chant "This is what plutocracy looks like!" and thank the other 99% for their tax dollars. The other clip is a protestor's eye view of the day. A short montage of protest signs, and a wide shot of the march on Seventh Avenue, full of peaceful folks as far as you can see.Link.
