The March 18 protest

More people came in L.A. and S.F. than we expected, there were over 20,000 at both. Interestingly, there was considerably more mainstream media than at past demos. At one point we had photographers onstage from AP, Reuters, the LA Times, and someone else. Plus CNN was there, as well as local TV news plus several media helicopters were in the air. Antiwar sentiment has gone mainstream. We are the majority now.

Let’s keep organizing. The maniacs in the White House will attack Iran if they think they can get away with it. Let’s make sure we stop them.

We are in the ascendant now, Bush is crumbling.

Sky falls in on Bush the outcast

Plagued by Iraq, the President’s own party is abandoning him as his poll ratings plunge.

    It was a good march and glad it didn’t rain.

    Here are the flickr photos of LA Greens and others at the march:

    I was somewhat surprised at the almost total lack of mention of Iran (in the SF demo). Not total, but much less than I would have expected. Especially since, as we saw in late 2002/early 2003, people are much more energized to stop a war that hasn’t started yet (or to try to) than to stop one already in progress.

    I finally got the post up of the London demo. I was unable to record any speeches but I’ve put up an account and some pictures.

    Glad yours went well 🙂
