From the BBC (U.K.)

BBC coverage of the protests and convention 16th and 15th August

Police on alert at Convention

US police have been deployed in strength in central Los Angeles, where the Democratic convention is underway, after the arrest of more than 150 protesters in various incidents over the past two days.

A civil liberties group demanded that the police be brought "under control"...

The police fired rubber bullets, swung clubs and used pepper spray to disperse thousands of concert-goers after a fringe group began throwing rocks, bottles and lumps of concrete at them.

Protests at money politics

Police and protesters clashed outside the Staples Centre on Monday as President Bill Clinton delivered his farewell speech to the Democratic Party convention...

Decrying corporate influence

The clashes came after a mostly peaceful day of protests that culminated with a concert by Rage Against the Machine, a band known for its politically charged lyrics, its driving rap-rock style and its intensely loyal following.



At least one protester was hospitalised



The protests addressed a broad range of issues including calls for nuclear disarmament, for an end to the death penalty and for Vice-President Al Gore to end his investment in Occidental Petroleum.

The protesters were united, however, by a belief that corporate money dominated US politics and that, as a result, their issues were not being addressed.
