8/29/2004 -- New York, NY -- Protesting the RNC in NYC -- Sunbathers Lily Phan and Glen Reppy laugh as their peaceful Sunday afternoon in Central Park becomes the staging grounds for political street theater. The Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army, or CIRCA, held an impromtu revival service with a puppet doll of George Bush as the prohet. Here, they are seen racing over the lawn past the sunbathers. Lily said, "We came to Central Park to get away from [the protests]. They came to us." She does no plan to vote this year. Glen is undecided as to for whom he will vote. He said, "Both parties are moving toward the ends of the spectrum, not toward the middle." During the day, hundreds of thousands (???) of peaceful protesters streamed through the streets of New York of a hot Sunday morning. As of 4 pm, protesters were still marching past the starting point of the parade. Photo by Dina Rudick, The Boston Globe.
