As Mitt Romney delivers his acceptance speech for the Republican presidential nomination on Thursday evening, a group of Miami residents and activists are planning a protest.
From the 1Miami press release:
The residents, representing working families across the city, reject the economic plan
put forth by Romney because it gives massive tax breaks to the wealthy while
placing a bigger burden on the middle class.
“We’re going to start a march from Bain owned stores because they foreshadow
the economy Romney wants to create,” said Eric Brakken, director of
