Best signs from the march

A summary of great anti-war slogans
This was my first time marching in Portland and it was wonderful! High energy, good speakers, smiling folks, and great signs. Some of the best were - pictures of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfield, Powell with the title "Asses of Evil",
a banner of a missile that read "What Goes Around Comes Around", a little girl whose sign had a picture of Bush in his army fatigues which said " Hey Bush, I like to play dress up, too!" , a woman with an umbrella that read "SI, Spain!". The cops seemed to stay in the background, from what I could see. The drum circles, dancers and samba group made the march into a party and lots of protestors danced with their signs. I don't live in Portland and came up alone but felt completely welcome immediatly. Thanks to all the oragnizers and activists and participants for making this such a great event!

A new world is truly possible.....

I saw a photo of an amerikkkan flag that had this written in the white lines: "My fascist government kills for profit, and all I got was this lousy flag"

It's probably been done, but it's timeless, you know
