The Republican National Convention is just around the corner now, and as speakers get ready with their speeches the city of Tampa is preparing for widespread protests by clearing jail cell beds in anticipation of mass arrests. The sheriff of Hillsborough county has ordered 1700 prison beds to be cleared, relocating some inmates in order to handle the arrests they plan on making. So what does it mean for protesters' freedom of speech and are there any plans to silence them? Tristan Lear and Kelly Benjamin, Occupy Tampa activists, join RT's Liz Wahl for more.
