Vancouver, WA weekend solidarity actions for DC Peacemakers

About 48 Vancouverites turned out today for the solidarity actions in DC. We held numerous hand-made signs, banners and flags under bright sunshine and cold, brisk winds. There tons of hornhonks. One reported several flip-offs to which he holds up TWO fingers! One guy came, arguing briefly, but didn't stick around.

I saw many familiar, beautiful friends, and lots of new ones. Mike T. took digital pictures and agreed to post them here.

Three of us were away. Marion Ward and Cindi Fisher are in DC for the march and lobbying, and Angie Lindquist is on a safari, after finishing up at the World Social Forum in Nairobe, Kenya.

Bring the troops home NOW. No more $ for the troop surge!
