Civic Center Park Protests and Profits

Even before the convention began the protesters were ready.


Even before the Democratic National Convention began several blocks away, protesters set up shop inside the flower-filled Civic Center Park in downtown Denver plying their issues and wares. Most of the protests hit President George Bush, but some also took a shot at Sen. John McCain and the liberals' charge that he would bring a third Bush term to Washington. While the protests were the main focus, most groups also sold goods like T-shirts and Impeach Bush ribbons for up to $20, making the Monday event a profitable one too.
