SHARE AFL-CIO gears up to march at convention

The AFL-CIO is planning a “theatrical” parade-style march at the convention this evening, according to the Tampa Tribune.

The group, which is the only one with a permit to demonstrate, will feature performers depicting what life will be like under the Romney Administration, according to the paper. The parade will start at 6 p.m. at Washington and Morgan streets and will go until 7:30 p.m.

Specifically, the parade will address voting inequities, a need for better working conditions and public education improvements.

The paper lists other demonstrations and events related to the convention today, including:

3:30-5:30 p.m., Doctors for America, Lykes Gaslight Square Park, 410 N. Franklin St.

2-3 p.m., Planned Parenthood, Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park, 1001 North Blvd.

7:06 a.m.-7:06 p.m., Man on the Cross, Herman Massey, 1002 N. Franklin St.

A speaker’s platform will be erected at the intersection of Caesar and Walton streets.
