Reporting from Denver - The Protests


Here's some shots of this morning's pro-immigration march through Denver. About 1,000 people showed up. In the background is the Denver Broncos Stadium where tonight Barack Obama will give his nomination speech.

With the world watching, I expected to see more demonstrations like this one, and bigger ones, too. But they didn't materialize, unless I've been standing in the wrong places. The cops, mind you, have still got their hands dirty. A reporter with us was maced, and temporarily blinded, after getting caught up in an anarchist protest. Here's a story and a photo.

In all, a hundred people have been arrested this week, including an ABC News producer, who annoyed police by blocking a sidewalk.

  1. I just have to say how proud I am that James Fergusson was in Denver covering the covention on behalf of the Bronx. The posts this past week and Bronx perspective to the events out there have been riveting. Kudos to James, the foundation that made this trip possible for community news media, and of course the West Bronx News Network!
