Anti-Flag has commented on their participation in the recent protest performance at the Republican National Convention in Minnesota.
Yesterday we played a show on the steps of the Minnesota State Capitol in opposition of the Republican National Convention. Before our set we had planned with Rage Against The Machine to have them come onto stage directly after our set and play a set of their own on our equipment. As is often the case at such events, all was proceeding peacefully and without confrontation until the police got involved. As RATM made their way to the stage, without reason or prior notification the police surrounded the band and informed them that they would be arrested if any of them set foot on the stage. As the crowd chanted, “Let them play…” a plan was formulated. Rather than bow to police oppression and law enforcement’s blatant disregard for free speech and the Constitution, it was decided that RATM would walk around the stage into the audience and issue a statement. From there things took on a life of their own…
A full account can be found on the band’s official blog.
Earlier today we posted some video footage of Rage Against The Machine at the same event. You can find it here.

Travis Barker, drummer of Plus 44 and previously Blink 182 and The Aquabats, recently spoke to Metromix Los Angeles about whether his former band Blink 182 will reunite in the near future, saying:
I don’t know. You know, to be honest with you, I haven’t spoken to Tom [DeLonge] in five years. I speak to Mark [Hoppus] every day, he’s one of my greatest friends, so…that’s the status of that. I think everyone would have to be friends, and I think we’d all have to want to do it in order for it to happen.
Blink 182 went an “indefinite hiatus” in 2005 after releasing the self-titled Blink 182 two years prior, in 2003.

When Rage Against The Machine attempted to play a left wing rally at the Republican National Convention this week, local authorities weren’t so sure it was a good idea and shut the show down.
