.- The Christian Defense Coalition has announced its plans to protest the August 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver.
Christian Defense Coalition organizers said Tuesday they will seek city permits and liaisons with the police and other agencies to make sure their presence is safe and legal, reported Rocky Mountain News. City permit applications will be accepted, beginning Nov. 1.
Coalition director Patrick Mahoney said he hopes to recruit 1,500 to 2,000 volunteer protesters. Volunteers will hold peaceful prayer vigils, form chains of message-bearing signs, and offer pro-life concerts and speakers, he said.
Mahoney told a press conference that posters depicting aborted fetuses will also be part of the protest âto show the reality of what abortion is.â
Mahoney is a minister in the Reformed Presbyterian Church and has been a pro-life activist for 20 years.
