Todays Protest At the Library--Pictures

Today's protest went well, we had somewhere around 200 people turn up, and the energy seemed good. Does anybody have any pictures from the event they could put up on Indy?
I'd say the highpoint was when we got to the library and a hundred or so of us streamed in to subvert any investigation the FBI might be running at the library. We checked out a hundred suspicious books, including How to Build a Nuclear Bomb, Understanding Islam, and Teach Yourself French.

The low point of the event--probably when I was leading chants at the end of the march.

"Ban bush not bombs," isn't exactly a great chant. Neither is "How much wood would a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood."

Anybody have any pictures?

On the contrary, "How much wood would a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood." is a GREAT chant!

Book List from Today 13.Apr.2003 02:01

Douglas Lain

Thanks for the picture!

Here's the list of 'subversive' books that we checked out today; it was born from my own head while I did a library catalog search. Nobody knows what list of books the FBI is looking for, but these seemed like good bets to me. If there is a book you think should be on the list but isn't, here's what you should do. Go to the library, check out the book, and then write to Ashcroft that you've checked the book out despite his best efforts and tell him he can go fuck himself.
