Activists plan human DoS against GOP convention

"Ten thousand people have signed up to volunteer at the Republican National Convention, but city officials are bracing for the possibility that some won't show up as a form of protest. Groups planning protests during the Aug. 30-Sept. 2 convention at Madison Square Garden have been encouraging activists to sign up to volunteer and then either not report for duty or show up and cause trouble. 'Fill out the volunteer forms. Be polite, dress appropriately, and smile a lot' during the application process, says a Web site dedicated to the sign-up-and-abandon strategy, run by Philadelphia resident David Lynn. The site then says: 'Don't show up for your volunteer assignment. Don't call in sick, don't give any warning - just don't show up.' Activist-volunteers are also being sought for the Democratic convention, July 26-29 in Boston."
