RNC Raids and Arrests Shake the Twin Cities

By Ramla Bile, Engage Minnesota Arrests continue Monday afternoon after a wave of pre-RNC raids shook the Twin Cities this past weekend. There are confirmed accounts of pepper spray related injuries, as well as the deployment of rubber bullets and tear gas on demonstrators. For updates, please visit Twin Cities Indymedia. Thousands of protesters are in St. Paul this afternoon, perhaps embolden after the reckless raids this weekend. The highly militarized pre-RNC effort to intimidate activists and deter dissenters has failed.
