The Republican convention has drawn protesters from around the country to New York. We hear from protesting drummers of the Rhythm Workers Union from Washington, D.C., and from three young people in Minnesota who came to New York on a whim.

As NPR's Margot Adler reports, the demonstrations also include some long-time organizers who go to protests across the nation.
