How-will-the-RNC-handle-possible-protests-in-Cleveland.jpg

On the July 19th edition of Your Call, we’ll discuss the planned protests during the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. Tens of thousands of civil rights, anti-poverty and anti-war activists are expected to rally and protest.

In Cleveland, where the Republican convention takes place this week, as many as 10,000 plastic handcuffs have been purchased, jail cells have been emptied, and courts will be open until 1 a.m. How are activists on the ground planning? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Bill Taylor, lead organizer of March on DNC

Larry Bresler, executive director of Organize!Ohio

April Glaser, journalist, and a fellow at the Wired magazine
