No More War!

A huge sign of solidarity against the illegal Iraq war

I attended one of the protests around the world today, this one in Los Angeles. I was hoping to see 1,000 people come out, on this rainy day. By the time the march through Hollywood started, there were about 10,000 people there. It was a beautiful event, everybody was on the same wavelength-no more war, stopping the ruling elite from killing for their profit, and there is no mistake about the connection of Iraq and Palestine. This protest is just another example that if this many people are willing to march in the rain, how many more are out there that want this vicious, illegal war to end? Of course, if you watch the chicken shit American media tonight, you won’t hear a peep about these protests. 100,000 people protested in London alone today. There were protests all over the world. The people want change, and are showing strong solidarity. The mainstream media is doing everything they can to muzzle us. I have not yet seen (I know, it won’t happen) news coverage from corporate media that actually interviews the protestors or shows footage of some of the speeches. Corporations are against us, but it is very encouraging to see the mass amount of support out there today.

    Good for you Al! My husband and I were disappointed that there was no protest organized in Boston, as we joined thousands to protest on the Boston Common 2 years ago and would have again. I was also disappointed and disturbed that only about 700 people demonstrated in New York. I would have expected more.

    RE the media’s non-coverage of the protests: A caller on
    C-span said this morning – “I heard about the Terri Schiavo case 78 times in one day, but heard absolutely nothing about the protests!” Frightening isn’t it?

  2. Al Says:

    Yeah, Terri Schiavo and College basketball were all over the news. Nothing on the protests. The ANSWER coalition was holding something in Boston Common, according to their listing. I haven’t heard how it went though. And I haven’t heard details on the New York protest either, but I think it was bigger than 700. Here is IndyMedia’s coverage.

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
