Puppet Protests a Problem at Republican Convention

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — While puppets have been a feature of the political landscape at conventions and large-scale demonstrations for decades, officials have effectively banned them for the Republican National Convention in Tampa.

The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/MXo0MZ ) reports that the city has essentially declared puppets’ components illegal in the RNC event zone, which covers most of the downtown area.

No sticks, strings or masks allowed — therefore, no puppets.

Tampa-area protesters have held a series of puppet-making workshops in recent weeks for those who plan to protest at the Republican National Convention in from Aug. 27-30.
