RNC Scene: Coalition to March on the RNC

Wind and rain didn't keep an estimated 500 people from protesting Monday afternoon in downtown Tampa. The group, known as the Coalition to March on the RNC, gathered at Perry Harvey Sr. Park on Orange Street.

At times, it looked like there were as many journalists as protesters at the event, where police on bicycles worked to keep potential anarchists in the protest zone.

Listen here.

One man was arrested for not removing a bandana from his face after a group of protesters broke away from the zone.

The Coalition to March on the RNC is fighting for "... good jobs, healthcare, affordable education, equality, and peace ...," the group's website says.
