Coast to Coast - Americans are Protesting

Recently, I was involved in a project that required a visit to every Independent Media Center in the country. I learned of an enormous movement happening across the United States that literally astounded me. There are protests and marches in every major city in the country.

I looked for articles in my local newspaper and on TV.....and there was nothing. These stories are found only on our network of IMCs, and bless them, for they are all unpaid volunteers serving the people, and trying to get the truth out - at a time when, we now know, the truth is not an issue for the Major Media. For instance, did you hear that in Chicago there were demonstrations for a solid week after the Nov. 2 Election..........NO.

What follows is an incomplete compilation of stories on citizen unrest from around the country. Most of them have fallen off the Main News Column, but can still be accessed. Check each cities' IMC to read the full story.
