That's going my my office window. the turnout is amazing! If only there was this kind of turnout for the Iraq war protests.

I wish I had a camera right now you all could see how big, amazing, positive and peaceful this demostration is.

I hear them chanting "USA, USA, we want to stay!"

1. of course, no coverage on MSM.
why should we expect them to ignore a texting NJ girl who may/may not have partied with friends and made up lies about a kidnapping?

maybe it will get some attention here. Hell, I didn't even know it was going to happen. I've never seen a protest crowd so large!

2. Great! That immigration "reform" plan is horrible. Would return torture
victims back to their home countries in some cases, among other disasters.

* Maybe March 18-19 we will have our crowds. Three years. Low poll numbers. Let's hope and tell everyone to join us in the streets next Saturday.

6. Thanks for that. Very good point made in that video; immigrants
are good enough to be used as fodder for this outrageous war, but not good enough to persue the American dream.

7. Going right by my window at work

just went and snapped this -


wanted to get the teenage girls with the 'Fuck Bush' sign but they got by too fast.

Impressive amount of people out there. Million?
