Some 20,000 - 50,000 war protesters might want to camp out at a Denver city park this summer during the Democratic convention at an event called "Tent State University:"
"The city issued an assembly permit in the southwest corner of the park for Tent State University to bring a tribe of college kids from across the country for an "alternative university" Aug. 24-28.
"Come to Denver to end a war!" declares the Web site for Tent State University, which describes itself as "a positive, youth-led initiative to fund education instead of war."
Tent State will be a staging area "to experience real democracy," protests and classes teaching nonviolent anti-war tactics and strategies, the Web site says.
While the city said the permit is for "approximately 20,000 participants," chief Tent State organizer Adam Jung said he dreams of luring up to 50,000 protesters if he locks up hot music acts ranging from political hip-hop to Southern honky-tonk.
The hang-up: Overnight camping is illegal in the park."
Tent State University. Can't think of anywhere I'd rather not be this summer.
