G-20 Protests: Not Just For Anarchists Anymore

Of course there are many peaceful groups planning to protest the upcoming G-20 Summit next week right here in Pittsburgh. Mostly we've heard about groups on the left end of the spectrum. However, I received an email this morning inviting me to attend a conference on the 22nd from the other side.

"Freedom Conference 2009" will be held next Tuesday at Soldiers and Sailors Hall.

According to a Trib article which I missed the first time around, attendees of Freedom Conference will be "a diverse mix of Ron Paul revolutionaries, Blue Dog Democrats, Libertarians, Tea Party Republicans and other advocates of small government" and who "will don more wingtips than black anarchist masks. Instead of carrying placards, they typically prefer to converse about bringing back the gold standard."

Good times.
