Protest Against WAR ~ Downtown

7:17 PM PDT on September 15, 2005

    Thin Blue Line

    According to the police, 15,000 anti-war protestors marched through the streets of downtown this past Saturday. A meld of rights-workers, drummers, dancers, celebrities, public advocates, street artists and performers, and everyday U.S. citizens let their voices be heard that sending troops to kill Iraqis and die for corporate and political interests was not in their own. Among the emotional speakers was Ron Kovic, who was portrayed in the film Born on the Fourth of July as well as mothers of slain troops from California. Our state has had more troops killed in action in this war than any other, so next time you are told Californian’s don’t know anything about the world by the red-staters, smoke ‘em out with that sad fact. Keep up the fight for true freedom!
