Final protest march features Romney effigy | News
Tampa, Florida -- They came from every direction: on bikes, on horseback, and on foot. Cops moved in, prepared for the final protest march on the RNC. Ground zero is Gaslight Park and the path leading there is Franklin Street.
In the rain they walked, arm in arm, hand in hand, a mass of humanity, mocking Mitt Romney and what they call "GOP greed".
As the crowd grew, costumes and masks, signs and drums, signal the arrival of Mitt Romney's effigy.
More than 100 protestors were joined by dozens of curious, concerned, and concealed. In the middle of Gaslight Park they gathered in a circle and chant, disgusted by corporate greed and the lack of jobs.
They filed out to hit the streets, followed closely by a line of police. One final push though the host city, the RNC in Tampa is history.
