Teargas fired into crowd at Kellogg, MnIndy reporter hit
By Paul Schmelzer 9/1/08 4:58 PM
Four blocks of Kellogg Blvd in St. Paul broke into chaos late this afternoon as riot police fired cannisters of chemical agents directly into the crowd. MnIndy’s Jeff Severens Guntzel was there and relayed his account of what happened.
Following an alert about an RNC Welcoming Committee “convergence,” he walked to Kellogg to find four blocks starting at Jackson filled with protesters who were dancing to the Dead Kennedy’s “California über Alles” playing on a stereo. Some were making “soft barricades,” items like newspaper boxes dragged into the street to block traffic. At 3:28, annoyed drivers eventually got out of their cars to move the debris.
