Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. In four months Tampa will host the Republican National Convention. When delegates, staff, journalists and demonstrators are counted as many as 50,000 people will be in the area for the convention.

The mayor of Tampa has proposed a large "clean-zone" around the convention site in downtown Tampa in which certain items and activities will be restricted.

Four years ago the city of St. Paul Minnesota hosted the Republican Convention. And to get an idea of some of the things we might expect when the convention comes here we’re joined now by Chuck Samuelson who is the Executive Director of the American Civil Liberties Union in Minnesota
