Mark Cohen Co Founder of RECREATE68 *LIVE* On In Your Face Radio
The title "Re-Create 68" says it all. A group of activists acting as a clearing house in order to disseminate information for a resistance at the DNC Convention in August, so the power of the people can be expressed as loudly as possible!

Along with Glenn Spagnuolo, Mark Cohen is the co-founder, and organizer, of RECREATE68. R-68 is one of the largest upcoming protests that will take place during the Democratic Convention August 25 – 28, 2008.
With the war in Vietnam in full swing and on the heels of the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy, 1968 proved to be a violent year in American history. Those events led to massive riots, non stop violence and hundreds arrested on the streets of Chicago during the 1968 Democratic National Convention.
The militant action spawned the infamous radicals known as the "Chicago 7" who were later tried for inciting a riot.
And now Spagnuolo and Cohen have chosen to .... RECREATE68!
JD will explore the protest, the participants, 1968 DNC riots, the goals of RECREATE68 with Cohen.
RECREATE68 has been a HOT BED of talk radio controversy. It’s a favorite website of both talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh (on the right) and Mike Malloy (on the left).
We are committed to resisting and overturning a system of violence inflicted daily on people of this country and the world, and against the natural environment, by political and corporate power, in the pursuit of profit. We are resolved that our group will not instigate violence against human beings as a means to end this system of violence and injustice. However, we recognize the right of the people to self-defense and community defense.
10 Mutual Assurances Between Groups And Organizations Planning DNC Related Activities:
To publicly support rights of free speech, the right to organize, and the right to dissent for all.
To maintain solidarity with and respect the guidelines of all permitted activities, recognizing that there are many individuals who seek a safe and peaceful protest.
To support and participate in efforts to assure civil liberties for everyone in Denver, including the right to organize civil disobedience and nonviolent direct action without that organizing being criminalized or disrupted.
To speak out against any pre-emptive arrests, raids on activists spaces, or attacks on independent journalists and other media.
To be conscious of and speak out against police targeting and differential treatment of people based on race, gender, sexual orientation, accent, or appearance.
Not to turn people over to the police, or share information with the police about other groups.
Not to publicly criticize the tactics used by other parts of our movement or cooperate with media efforts to be divisive or portray good protester/bad protester.
To publicly condemn police repression and brutality.
To be conscious that if violence or property destruction does occur, we will do what we can to help prevent it from being blown out of proportion and dominating the media coverage.
To remember that, when all is said and done, our greatest victory will be an activist community with a renewed sense of strength and unity.
What do you think??
We Urge You to GIVE IT A VOICE!
