DNC is over and I escaped unscathed. No arrests and no tear gas to the eyes. My emergency sub plans were never carried out and so for me, a small personal success at the DNC protests must be noted.
So now, after months of organizing, were the protests successful? Was all that work worthwhile?
The brief answer to the first question is- to my initial standards the protests were an utter failure, but to my later amended expectations they were a solid success.
As for the second question- Absolutely. I'm really glad I was involved with Unconventional Denver. I gained a better orientation of the Denver Left (for better or for worse) and made some good friends along the way. I've got some fresh perspectives on things and some skills too. I also went on Fox News, the national one. That might have been the highlight of it all.
I'll probably be posting a long winded analysis of things in a few weeks, but right now it's nice to just know that it's over.
