Protesters and the DNC One large part of the expected activity during the upcoming Democratic National Convention in Charlotte will be the actions of the protesters who plan to appear in the Queen City to march, hold parades, picket and speak during Convention week. We'll talk about the role of the protester, what they plan to do during the DNC, about First Amendment Rights and how the city plans to operate to respect everyone's rights and still have a successful convention. Guests Bob Hagemann - City Attorney for the City of Charlotte Sara Flounders - Co-director of the International Action Center. She organizes large national demonstrations and is in town this week to work with Charlotte protesters planning for the DNC.
