38. Last YEAR Protests in US 319 - THIS YEAR in US 765 - all 50 STATES
Good Job getting this pic.

Main Stream News isn't reporting, but INDY is, even so they aren't fully aware and neither is the DU that AGAIN WE HAVE *SUCCEEDED* BUT the LIES Continue to be the TRUTH until the TRUTH is REVEALED.

KNOW what I MEAN??

http://www.unitedforpeace.org/article.php?id=2688

<snip>
March 18-20 marks the two-year anniversary of the U.S. bombing and invasion of Iraq. At least 765 U.S. towns and cities, in all 50 states are holding anti-war events - more than double the number of anti-war actions on the first anniversary of the war last year.

http://www.unitedforpeace.org/article.php?id=2336
<snip>
Protests on One-Year Anniversary of Iraq War Took Place in at Least 319 Cities and Towns in the United States and 398 Around the World

IF you want real NUMBERS on M19 Marches or HAVE numbers to report, please plant them in this thread:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

I'm going to try and put together the National Picture by MAY 1.

Please help by nominating this for greatest. I need a lot of help. THIS is BIG News People!!! YEAH for US!!!

9. No, I didn't know that you could just post PHOTOS over there...


the article that goes with the photos is horrible...really lowballs the numbers of Pro-Peace activists (spewing), doesn't even notice the SHIFT to the neighbor level, and the military recruitment offices, calls these photos from Fayettville while failing to note that this is Ft. BRAGG..the home of the secret ops and the torture school of the Americas....the BELLY OF THE BEAST....


I may have to write my own article about these Pro-Peace events tomorrow, after I get some rest...it's been a long day...


but...don't hesitate..if you want to post the PHOTOS on LBN, be my guest....I think this is SUCH A BIG DEAL, that it's the right-thing-to-do to put them there....

14. If it's a crappy article -- leave it
I agree...it's been a long day. I went to two protests and probably walked 7 miles all told.

Tomorrow at least the alternative media should have some good reports about all the protests, and there will be some good op-eds in the newspapers.

33. Yes, but most people (especially Right Wingers) just look at the Pictures
Only 12 percent of USA people read the newspaper daily. If anything, this is still GOOD NEWS (posted in the NY Times).

A picture tells a thousand words. I love the one with the sweet mature lady help carry a coffin while simultaneously flashing us the peace sign. Bless her courage! :yourock:

46. It really isn't degrading at all
There are several men the Green Berets revere above all, and John F. Kennedy is at the very top of the list.

John F. Kennedy understood that the United States needed a small, select group of highly-trained warriors under the aegis of the Defense Department to perform covert operations. He got the initial funding. He got the SF their green beret. If you go to the Kennedy museum in Boston, you'll find a green beret in there. It is because of John F. Kennedy that the special operations community exists in its current form.

There are other men, like Bull Simons (who led the Son Tay Raid in Vietnam), Aaron Bank (who formed the 10th Special Forces Group), William Yarborough (World War II parachute innovator and first commander of the Special Operations school) and Roger Donlon (first Vietnam War SF trooper to win the Medal of Honor), that they respect...but they worship Kennedy.

21. LOL
That remindsme of the old lady who lived in a local hotel where I'd just gotten a job in the bar. This was years ago, and the hotel has sadly been destroyed since.

Anyway, she came by the desk to pick up her key. She'd just gotten out of jail. She was arrested for protesting the NASA nuclear debacle at the Space Center.

20. (LINK) to New York Times photos...

it's the Multi-Media Slideshow down low on the right hand side...

the article stinks and is full of lies, so only read it if you're holding your nose....but at least the Ft. Bragg photos got in there....that's a BIG impact, since those are MILITARY FAMILIES and Veterans turning against bush* wars....it's a BIG turning point today...

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/03/20/national/20protests.h...


the BIG APPLE...where Pro-Peace activists shut down many military recruiting offices today....we love NYC....

22. They'll be attacked
It occurs to me that the neocon blogs will be full of comments about these military families not supporting their own, and all that rot. We should invade some of them en masse, or is that against the rules?

24. Thanks Diamond. MSM is saying 350 protestors with a straight face?
Here in Los Angeles, there was atleast 5,000 from what people there were saying, although media of course is downplaying it to about 2000 LAers.

Pouring the propaganda on pretty strong arent they?

26. it's making them REAL nervous, targets military recruitment offices,
Edited on Sun Mar-20-05 01:11 AM by diamond14

and encourages/supports troops to go AWOL (with almost 6000 soldiers skipped out on bush*), with lots of Veterans, active duty military, and the military families of the DEAD soldiers....and the ominous photos of flag-draped and black coffins carried down streets all over America, and silent vigils formed in many parks all over America, and the MAIN STREAM majority religions join the Pro-Peace movement, with peaceful civil disobedience and arrests of nuns/priests/rabbis/ministers/etc. in the streets of NYC, with the pictures of DEAD soldiers hanging on their chests...



bushites KNOW that their time is coming to an end...IMO, these
huge numbers of 'neighborhood' events are much more devastating to the bush regime than on or two BIG CITY marches, harder to control and spin....I'm sure the bushites are sitting up and paying attention...

Heck, some of them are well dressed casual and that older (mature) gentleman the the upper left corner looks like a grandfather. Gee, the only nasty looking folks are the domineering coppers. :-)

37. Agreed, I was just looking there and was about to comment....
when I saw your post.

I wish that the slide show had included photos that weren't so stereotypical of what folks in the heartland see the anti-war movement as looking like. Not that the stereotype is bad, it's just that it keeps the protests at more of a remove from regular folks than it should.

Where were the photos of veterans?

Where were the photos of Mom, Dad, and the "girl next door"?

They were there too. And that's a big point of where the sentiment against Bush's war in Iraq stands. Regular people pissed off that lives are being recklessly spent in a war based on a lies.

There is diversity of opinion amongst those who are displeased in how Bushco got us into Iraq and how the war has been conducted. The anti-war movement is both widening and becoming more inclusive.

Part of the success of that comes when regular people learn that they are far from alone in their disappointment with Bushco. Part of the process is showing the regular people that people just like them are out there protesting.

I think the persons who chose these photos did so with a deliberate mindset geared towards not providing our side with more ammo than the inevitable minimum.

Hehehe, maybe I'm being hyper-critical. But there's an almost palpable aura about the media these days that indicates they are frightfully attuned to never giving the administration a really hard time.

28. Unfortunately
I only see the online version but on there it looks like the Terri Schiavo situation is the lead story and these pictures are burried somewhere inside.

Or are these pictures on the front page in the hard copy?

firmly in mind, hoping they were all right and safe.
