With the opening of the 2012 Democratic Party National Political Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina just two days away, a spirited albeit comparatively small demonstration took place downtown, with protesters marching just a few blocks from the convention site.

Ray Suarez, of PBS NewsHour, tweeted, “Just watched Occupy et. al. march through Charlotte, who were in turn watched by enough cops to invade a small country.”

In 2004 on the the eve of the Republican National Convention in New York City, and estimated 500,000 protesters marched by Madison Square Garden to voice their opposition to the Bush administration.

The march in Charlotte was estimated at 700.

Jon Winet, Mark Neucollins, and Zabet Neucollins will be filing text, photography and video dispatches from Charlotte throughout the week.
