    If you were able to follow along with my sporadic and unhinged twitter updates, or read my posts here on Feministing.com, you already know that the RNC security team delivered swift but massive blows to the infrastructure of dissent created to ensure political change in the next election.

    Thumbnail Yesterday afternoon, a Republican friend of CODEPINK bequeathed upon Jodie Evans one ticket to Sarah Palin’s acceptance speech last night at the Republican National Convention.

    As it often does when the GOP does something respectful of human rights, yesterday’s decision to cancel the majority of day one activities at the RNC threw activists for a loop .
