I totally should have annouced it on here, but there were BIG protests yesterday against the War in Iraq and the inevitable War in Iran. I think they were held in like 8 cities in the US. It was amazing. 30,000 people marching down Market Street in San Francisco, chanting, singing, shouting....all peacefully. There were amazing speakers there too. I had never met a mother of a killed soldier in Iraq before, and it was so moving. I could just see her on that day when the soldiers came to her door to tell her that her son was dead. Cindy Sheehan was there and that was cool. She did a good job of encouraging everyone.
But there was relatively no news coverage in the major news sources (surprised?). We need to take a bigger stand especially now since the government is planning a war with Iran and they wont give two shits if 50,000 people protest, because the other 260 million people in the US are supporting them through their silence.
