Ah, the memories!!

In a post earlier this week I reminisced about the birth of Protest Warrior. That brought back some fond memories of the first major protest put on by the Minnesota chapter.

In October 2004, about 30 PWs showed up at the Xcel Energy Center in St Paul to protest the George Soros music festival “Vote for Change” concert. This big musical event featured the likes of R.E.M., Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young and their attempts to raise money for John Kerry.

Finally, I have video footage of the event for your viewing pleasure!

My dear friends Greg & Ruth were kind enough to volunteer as videographers. Even more generous was Greg’s editing of a concert attendee accosting us with a loud, angry, profanity-laced tirade. To me, it’s the funniest part of the whole video.

My words are immortalized on YouTube (to the angry vet wearing the Kerry t-shirt), "THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!"

Thanks for putting this up, Brad - and more importantly thanks for YOUR service as ProtestWarrior chapter leader. 2008 will be a fun year at the Xcel!
