3:07 - Waterfront - March is just leaving the park, there are alot of people, at least a shitload plus. The speakers have just finished, people are stretching out as far as the caller can see. |
2:46 - Burnside Bridge - The march started about 10 minutes ago, led by Veterans for Peace and Military Families Speak Out. There is a group of people chained togather, walking with hoods over their heads. More than 1000 people. People are super stoked, there is a drum corps and it is a great day!
2:37 - Santa Cruz - Had a great rally at the Town Clock Tower, about 350 people. There was a march down Pacific Ave, lots of onlooking and car horn support. The main focus was "End the War NOW." The marchers demanded that the troops come home how. They reached out to labor unions and student groups to make the march and rally happen.
2:11 - Portland Legal - PLDN says the feeder marchers are joining with the main march at the waterfront. The crowd is estimated at over 1000. The speakers have not yet started and the start of the march still seems a bit far off.
2:06 - Eugene - Eugene had a boring liberal rally yesterday as well (description inspired from the current topics), but people seemed inspired.
1:57 - Edmonds, WA - Today a group of older women are going to hold a celebration for peace. This has been ongoing since January, before the war started. Most people support their simple message of peace and cessation of war. There was about 20 people that participated.

12:41p - New Orleans - About 400 people protesting against the war and because the United States is still ignoring to people of New Orleans and the Gulf area. Over 150 people walked from Mobile Alabama into New Orleans. They started the walk on March 13th, walking 5-7 miles per day. Caller recommends to stop watching the evening news, and start taking real action.
