With Boston in the books, progressives can now get ready for some serious protesting when the GOP hits the unlikely shores of New York City for its convention, beginning on August 30. There are scores of demonstrations, marches, protests, vigils, concerts, panels, presentations and parties planned in opposition to George Bush’s visit and his Administration’s reactionary extremism. (Probably the largest single march will take place on August 29.)
