Funk The War, a student activist group that seeks to end the war in Iraq through music and dancing, took to the streets Monday at the Republican National Convention in St Paul. "Funk the War has spread like a fluorescent colored disco fungus across the map of the United States, and infected youth with militant anti-war disco fever," reads the group's website. "War is a waste of our youth! Funktocracy is in the streets!"
St Paul Bike police moved the anti-war revelers out of secure zones by ramming them with bikes and pepper spraying them.
