"Day X" Day of Bombing Protests (3/20/2003) Video Online

When the U.S. military invaded Iraq on March 20, direct action and civil disobedience erupted all around the country. In Portland, Oregon, crowds of people tried to "shut down the city" and managed to block three interstate highways and as many bridges, as well as occupy a major intersection until far into the night. Police were brutal in their response. Independent videographers outnumbered corporate cameramen by a large margin, and this documentary is the best coverage of the night of resistance.
