Taos, New Mexico--2500 march on Rumsfeld's house

At least 2500 people rallied and marched against the war in Iraq. The march ended at Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld's House where a list of charges for war crimes was left on his gate.

Saturday Oct. 26 in Taos, NM more than 2500 people marched from a local art gallery down the main highway to Sec. of Defense Donald Rumsfeld's house. I saw types of people at this protest that I never see at protests: soccer moms and people with "God Bless America" stickers on their cars.

The mayor of Taos Fred Peralta declared Taos a "peace zone". Its unusual to have protest so large in a place with such a small population (the entire county of Taos has about 30,000 people).

Organizers in the ACT--Action Coalition of Taos did an excellent job with publicity and planning. Author John Nichols spoke of the long list of US government perpetrated crimes and imperial interventions. A priest from Cimmaron who recently moved here from New York City described counseling grieving families after Sept. 11 who did not want to see more blood shed.
